These are so simple to make and fit perfectly, I only adjusted the pattern lengthwise a little for my height. I think they will look nice also with a blazer for work, or with a hoodie for the weekend.
The material is a thin blackish grey cotton corduroy which gives off a nice shine and changes expressions like velvet in different angles.
I am so in love with them! Actually, I was starting to feel uneasy about my New Year’s resolution to make my own clothes, worrying that what I have made so far look too homemade. But these shorts don’t look homemade at all, and gives me new “energy” to continue with my NY resolution!
