Millburn, New Je...
I made these shorts based off of the Ellen pants pattern, but instead cut to be shorts, with a side zipper and no pockets. I wanted some non-jean short style bottoms in my wardrobe; something more soft and dainty. The fabric is a tiny ditsy print from superbuzzy and it is 100% cotton.
The top is made from a shirred gauze, and made a little large for drape. As a reference as to how wide it is, I started from two pieces of fabric that were about 21" wide, and 29" long.
