We've had so many requests for this over the last few weeks. This walking shorts pattern is the perfect opportunity for you guys to make the shorts many of you requested after we published a compilation of shorts for women and children a few weeks ago. In that post, there were many types of shorts and many were very short. These shorts are not that short and even if you find them too short I will show you how to make them longer. Which is why we are going to start from fitting the pattern rather than sewing first. We will go through the whole procedure --making the patch pockets, sewing darts, sewing a lapped zipper, attaching a facing with a lapped zipper and finally hemming the shorts. In addition to all this, I will be showing you how to transform this pattern into lovely palazzo pants. I'm naming these shorts "on a stroll" because that is what most of you wanted. Just a pair of shorts to go walking around, hang around the house, do gardening and still look good and age appropriate. These walking shorts have two pockets, two slant pockets in the front and two unlined patch pockets in the back.
