My first pair of shorts! Made from the colette Iris pattern. However I had to make them very long as it is culturally inappropriate to show my knees where I live. When I am back in the USA I am going to cut them to a much shorter length.
I wrote more about it in my sewing journal: http://cathywu.com/journal/treadling/2012/12/13/colette-iris-long-shorts/
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
