Kwik Sew 3854 Shorts View B

The weather round these parts has been somewhat fickle - it's taken until today for me to get these shorts out into the open ... I've made Kwik Sew 3854 View B in all 5 sizes so that I can run this as a workshop. Here is the Small (Left) and the Medium (Right).

Kwik Sew 3854

I used these snaps on the Denim shorts (above) quite easy to apply.

Extra Small
 I used these Anorak Snaps for the red shorts - totally painful - maybe you need much thicker fabric, but I struggled and damaged every 2nd Snap with these ...
Fabric Covered Buttons on the Large Shorts

Jean Buttons on these Extra Large Shorts

 These are very cute shorts for youthful legs .... I've cut out a slightly longer pair for myself which you may or may not ever see!!! Would you like to learn how to make these shorts? You'll learn lots and lots of great skills and finish with cute shorts for summer (when summer actually decides to arrive ) - contact me to join a class!


  1. These look like great shorts. I really love the variety you've managed to create. Your fabric and button/snap choices seem all rally spot on. I'd really like to start making shorts one day and this looks like a great pattern.

  2. Cute shorts! All of them with great fabric/fastener combinations. I have a similar Burda pattern I am itching to make!

  3. These are really cute shorts! Just the sort of thing I went for when I was younger and lived in Florida. Love the details and the way they flatter a curvy figure!

    I am so glad you found me! I will update you on my blogroll. Rebuilding that is turning out to be much more difficult than I thought. So many people to find again!

  4. Super cute shorts and you finish them so well. Glad to see them posted.

  5. Love the buttons on the larger shorts..... VERY CUTE - although I don't think I've worn shorts for about 15 years.

  6. They are great! perhaps not for me, but my daughter. The red is a wonderul colour.

  7. Sooooo cute! I love this pattern. Now I have to go get one for myself!

  8. They look fantastic - I've just cut out a pair after your inspirational photos! Now to see if they fit me...


Please leave a comment .... thankyou!
