Sybil shorts

Sewing pattern in PDF sizes 34 to 44


Sybil is a high-waisted short that looks like a skirt with two slant pockets on the hips and a zip plus hook or button on the wearer’s left side.

The fullness of the shorts creates flare, giving it the appearance of a skirt.

It’s the ideal summer garment! But you could also make versions for more autumnal weather by using a thicker fabric. Though to hang nicely, the fabric should have a certain amount of fluidity.

… A small plus… You only need 1.20 m of fabric to make Sybil!
