Lamb nappa leather shorts sewing pattern.
These shorts are just so cool. If you can’t find gorgeous leather like this, any other trouser fabric works great too.
To make this style in size 36, you will need 2 skins with a total of approx. 15 sq. ft. (1 sq. ft. = 30 × 30 cm). Ask your leather dealer about the requirements for larger sizes since leather skins can vary greatly. We recommend you take the entire paper pattern piece with you when buying the leather.
A piece of lining fabric, 30 × 70 cm (12 × 28 ins) for pocket pieces.
Vilene Bias Tape/stay tape.
Invisible zipper, 22 cm (9 ins) long, and a special presser foot.
Textile adhesive (e. g. Rudolfix, G termann Klebenaht HT 2).
Enter to win weekly drawings and a fabulous grand prize!
The lines of Greek architecture inspire this neutral and pastel collection.
