I made these shorts with a v-shaped yoke, and cut the leg parts from an old skirt that I thrifted for 50 cents. The yoke is made from a piece of floral quilting cotton that my grandma gave me in a grab bag. If I made them again, I would make more gathers and use a zipper. They are really flowy and loose which was nice on days like today when there was about 200% humidity.
yoke= floral quilting cotton, leg parts= polyester print from an old thrifted skirt
