Learner-in-progress disclaimer: Shouldn’t have used striped fabric without taking the time to match them…poop. Other than that sloppy move, I’m so happy with these! They are just what I wanted them to be; ridiculously high-waisted short shorts for Summer.
Thinking more colorful fringed thrift store tees, bustiers and swimsuits for the top since the shorts waist hits just a couple inches below the bust line.
Going to try and hunt down better denim choices for more makes. Floral or other wild prints or DIY’ing acid wash… (if bleach were more earth-friendly, I’ll feel so much better about using it – are there bleach alternatives I can look into?)
Denim with a hint of stretch to it, zipper fly, four buttons, white cotton for high-waist panel facing.
Take off with pleats, cut-outs, insets, and futuristic prints.
