Brilliant fast delivery

Great pattern

Love the board shorts pattern. Changed it up with a zipper fly, a flap and snap for the pocket. After I finished. Hubby requested belt loops and back pockets, so added some welt pockets. Nice fitting too!

Bree Campbell
Great shorts

I have made two pairs for my husband and I now. They are easy to sew with great instructions. I would have to referred a zip closure instead of Velcro, or at least the option to do either.

Quick sew

Easy and quick to sew.. Instructions are very detailed

Deb Ingley
Approved by hubby

I needed to modify the pattern a bit because my husband wanted a zipper and 2 cargo pockets. I decided to use dome closures for the pockets and a button at the waist. Must have turned out OK because he wants another pair!

Adult Boardshorts pattern

Like all the Ellie & Mac patterns, this one is simple and intuitive yet produces a great finished product. I have purchased nearly ALL of the patterns and love everyone of them.

Helen Chapman
Great pattern

Made these for my husband although he wasn’t impressed when I told him the closure would be Velcro so had to figure out how to add a zip fly to them, the fact he won’t take them off for me to wash tells me how much he loves them though
