Lace shorts with trim

Added Jul 22, 2011

Tokyo, Japan






A pair of lace shorts, very basic shape with a couple of darts on each side, no pockets, an invisible zipper on the side, and lace trim on the hem.

The pattern is based on style #11: Tight straight pants from Blouse, Skirt & Pants Style Book, a Japanese pattern book. The book has rather different approach, it features six basic styles for tops and six basic styles for bottoms. Then we are shown how to make alterations on each styles to create new pattern. I think this book is good for anyone who wants to learn pattern drafting.

    Those shorts look great. I think I might have to make similar ones for myself after seeing these. :)

    I love this very much! Great combination with your blouse. It would also look fabulous with high heels ;-)!

      Thank you! Unfortunately I didn’t make the top, it’s an H&M top I bought on sale for 5USD :)

      Glad that you like the hair! It was my first haircut after living in Japan for 3 years!
