Inspired by the fantastical mme caoutchouc, that is the elastic woman in Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s movie ‘Micmacs’, I made these high waisted black velvet shorts with suspenders.
I just loved how cute they looked, though I definitely cannot twist my body in that way (that is also why I did not need to use elastic fabric)! :)
Now all I need is an occasion to wear these…hmm… :D
