Description

These shorts may be a bit of an unusual fashion statement, but I’m strangely intrigued and borderline obsessed with them!

The pattern is the Sarrouel Trousers, No. 8, from She Wears the Pants, a Japanese sewing book by Yuko Takada. These harem-style shorts feature in-seam pockets, a fly front, bias cut pieces in the front and back, and tucks along the hemlines. I made a size L (the largest size) and added 1.5 inches in length to the hem of each leg.

More photos, construction notes, and my experience wearing the shorts in public on my blog:

Material Notes

Rose Bouquet Rayon in Orchid by Joel Dewberry for Westminster/Free Spirit. This was my first time working with one of these new rayons, and I would recommend them. The fabric has a ton of drape, and the colors are bright and seem to be holding up well in the wash.
