If you are working with a standard pattern for leisure wear summer shorts, a simple straight stitch seam will be good enough. If you are making sports shorts, that will require a stronger finish, I suggest a flat fell seam.

The inside seam of a pant leg.

Do the Simplicity Patterns consider the inseam on the pattern when you cut them out or do you need to leave a little extra fabric on the outside of the pattern when you apply it to the fabric?

I believe you are asking about a "seam allowance". ("Inseam" is the measurement of the seam that runs down the inside of your leg -- for example, men's pants that are labeled 32x30 means the waist is 32 inches and the inseam (from crotch to hem on the inside of the leg) is 30 inches.) To answer your question, all commercially printed patterns include a seam allowance. They are designed for you to cut on the outside solid line, and then stitch the pieces together with the seam width indicated on the pattern piece (usually 5/8 inch).

What are booty shorts?

Booty shorts started as a more modern style of slim fitting women's underwear known as "boy shorts" or "hipster panties" with a cut that lies somewhere between that of shorts and a bikini. In more recent times, booty shorts have become available in various outerwear shorts for women, most popularly as denim shorts. Similarly to the underwear, denim "booty shorts" form fit tightly to the skin, with generally just enough coverage in the back to not expose the backside, while the leg opening becomes gradually shorter as it goes around the thigh towards the front of the leg, leaving the front and sides of the shorts several inches shorter than the rear near the seam, thus giving the shorts a bikini inspired shape. In recent years, popular outlet brands such as Hollister and Ambercrombie have widely popularized the style.
