Description

These shorts were draped in my Draping 2 (I would much rather just draft pants). There are deep pleats in the front, darts in the back, a back zipper, and a hooks and bar closure. They were hard to drape, but super easy to sew (there were only 3 pattern pieces). The fabric is a two-toned twill denim I got on clearance. I liked the red undertones, and it will work nicely as part of a Go Red for Women outfit.

Material Notes

Fabric, 7" zipper, hook and bar

Difficulty

Intermediate

      Thanks :). I’m hoping my sister will wear them actually (I’m much too big to fit into these bad boys).
