Meet your new go-to summer shorts pattern - The Greenstyle Creations Moxi Shorts! Angelyn Bennett, the designer at Greenstyle Creations, originally designed these shorts with fitness in mind. However, when our testers got a hold of the pattern, we found the variety and styling to be endless! You can check out some of our tester photos at the end of this post and for even more great photos of the Moxis, you can view the Moxi Photo Album on the Greenstyle Creations - Sewing and Pattern Facebook Group Page.

PATTERN DETAILS (fun version!)
Rule the summer with these shorts! Take them to the gym, your urban run, the trails, the beach, a fun evening walk, running errands, or the pool! They are so comfortable you will want to wear them every day.
There are several options and many different looks you can get out of this one pattern! There are optional built in briefs or a thong and you can purchase an additional option for compression shorts to be added (great if you are wanting more length) to expand your possibilities and don't forget about the optional waistband zipper pocket! But beware......As some of our testers found out, once you start sewing the Moxis, you can't stop! They really are a fun and quick sew!
And now for the tester photos!
