These are the first pants/shorts I ever did, but it’s not that difficult, once you figured out how it works. I like the fabric, but I’m not totally confident how it turned out. The fabric is a little bit stiff and makes the pleats to bulge. Also I made some alterations for a better fit, the shorts are still very wide. I consider to make them shorter, because I think the length it not so good for my legs. I also worry a little bit about the back. What do you think?
Edit: The last pic shows the Tonia shorts after I altered them. Now I like them more :)
some hard fabric, tightly woven (kind of jaquard?)
