Rad Shorts really are Rad!
At first I was a little sceptical about this pattern; I hadn't constructed shorts like this before but loved the look so gave it a go.
It is, as all of the Sew Sweet Pattern range, easy to follow and construct. It is a fantastic fit, length and shape. They wear well and have a good amount of 'growth room' for little ones. I ensure the durability of the shorts by including a reinforcing zig-zag at the side hemlines where the front and back meet (I have had a pair tear here without the extra stitches).
I highly recommend this pattern - it is now my go-to shorts pattern for my son.
