With the leftovers from another project I managed to cut the pieces for these shorts. I loved the suede shorts seen in some current designer collections, and this fine-wale corduroy version has the luxe texture of suede with out the high price tag and cleaning difficulties… I used Burda 7723 and just flared and lengthened the legs to get a more current look and went with a hidden skirt hook and eye closure to get a more streamlined tailored look to the waistband. Also added a zip placket.
The top is made out of broderie anglaise cheesecloth using Butterick 4985, with random overlays of cotton lace sewn on, raw edges, and cotton crochet strips used for a waist tie and to edge the front openings. I found these cute little buttons that look a bit like old-fashioned sapphire rings.
