I just made my first pair of shorts and I love them! They are by the French indie brand Deer and Doe patterns, the Chataigne shorts were a pleasure to make and are a great fit. I cut them in a size 38 since the size 36 of other Deer and Doe patterns had been a little tight at the waist. But as the shorts actually sit on the hips I had to take them in a little on the sides. Next time I’ll cut them in a 36. The fabric is a suit polyester and I used the leftover stash from a previous dress for the inside yoke and pocket lining. Can’t wait to make a summer version when the weather gets nicer!
