A pair of lace shorts, very basic shape with a couple of darts on each side, no pockets, an invisible zipper on the side, and lace trim on the hem.
The pattern is based on style #11: Tight straight pants from Blouse, Skirt & Pants Style Book, a Japanese pattern book. The book has rather different approach, it features six basic styles for tops and six basic styles for bottoms. Then we are shown how to make alterations on each styles to create new pattern. I think this book is good for anyone who wants to learn pattern drafting.
