Thai Fisherman Shorts

Added Jan 25, 2010

Hobart, Australia






These shorts are a great summer essential, based on the BurdaStyle Thai Pants. I shortened the length and added 2 hidden buttons on each leg which allow adjusting to 2 different lengths – can be rolled up or hung down.

    These look really good as shorts. I was iffy on the pattern as pants, but you’ve done a nice job on altering it. I like these photos, you have great style. :)

      thanks, I have sold many at my weekend market, they are a great relaxed look, will need to make more in the pant version as cooler weather reaches OZ.

    Wow! Great idea! I never even thought to shorten the pants into shorts. I never really liked the style of the fisherman pants but I love these shorts! Great job.

      Originally I made a pair of the pants, never wore them much, then one hot day took scissors to the pants… and thai fisherman shorts were born!

    This is so super cute. Love the ties to shorten or lengthen. I like the suiting you used too.
