Gigantic Pleated Pockets Shorts

Layerable puffy, pleated shorts. My own pattern.

Later edit: Thank you all for the comments! In case you want to make a pair for yourself, you can read the step by step tutorial and download the free pattern (size s) from my blog: http://skyturtle.net/2010/12/31/how-to-make-a-pair-of-fancy-shorts-tutorial-and-free-pattern/

Material Notes

I used a thin linen, but I guess any fabric that’s not elastic goes. I’m planning of making them in satin and thick cotton too!

    I’d love to see these on. It’s hard to imagine what they’d look like on a person—they’re so unique!

    What a great design! They look comfy and have that unique yet purposeful niche in someone’s wardrobe.
