I made these as my first serious attempt to make clothing. The waistband looks a bit unusual as i made a slight mistake but i still think this adds a nice unique stylish touch.

Material Notes

Crepe de chine, satin, interfacing

    They’re sooo nice :) Great way of giving them unusual look. Hope one day I would be capable of creating sth as nice as your shorts :)

    Your shorts are truly beautiful. I hope you wear them often—they look like the kind of thing you could get a lot of mileage out of. I’d love to know where you got that beautiful fabric. Keep it up.

    If this was your first serious sewing project, you should know that lots of experienced seamstresses shy away from bound pockets (I used too, but now I’m hooked). So it’s quite an achievement. I’m looking forward to what you’ll come up with next!

    I love that you used a fabric that seems like it would usually be reserved for tops and dresses and used it for shorts!

    I LOVE THESE! Awesome fabric matching and detail. Love the buttons. Love the contrast stitching down the bottom. Very ambitious for a first project!
