Sewing pattern in paper 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!

I made my shorts in double gauze, but you could also use poplin, viscose, chambray, cotton… It depends what you like and on the season!

- 15 cm by 1 m of fabric for the pocket facings and pocket linings (fine cotton, poplin, satin…)
