The linen shorts are really comfortable. The linen is made from a rayon linen blend, and is slightly stretchy. I actually based the pattern off the yoga pants from burdastyle. I added pockets, made more room in the legs, lowered the front crouch a bit, and used a elastic band for the waist band. I would have made it shorter, but being all chubby and matern-y, I dont think I can pull off the cute hochimama look anymore!
