Swing, slide or sashay into summer with these gorgeous peg shorts that capture the charm and elegance of yesteryear.

Designed to take the simple styling of shorts to a whole new level, the peg shorts feature a flat waistband at the front and all the practical comfort of elastic at the back.

With the inclusion of Japanese-inspired kawaii ruffles or the optional pleated mini skirt panel to add a chic, vintage finishing touch should you desire. Front pockets are another feature of this versatile design, making these are the ultimate shorts for an active child, without sacrificing style and comfort. There is also the option to add cuffed hems and/or two rear pockets in a flattering single welt design.

The peg shorts pattern comes in sizes 1-10, and is suitable for adventurous beginners and beyond using light to medium-weight woven fabric.
