I made these because they're fun. That's why I did it.
And, it was a nifty use of fabric to create the ruffles. I always have small cuts of fabric kickin around the studio (the highly prized "stash" as we people-who-sew call it), so I made my own trim with the funnest colours. I cut the fabric into strips, sewed them together end to end, gathered the entire length by hand (3 meters per pair!) and attached them to the shorts (which are also made by my hands, obvy).
Sizing & Fit: Mid to high rise elastic waistband, very short inseam, more coverage and length in the back. This fabric has a bit of stretch, so depending on your desired fit, you can go with your hip measurement or even 1 inch smaller than the hip measurement. These measurements are approximate and taken flat, double where necessary. Don't hesitate to reach out if you need help choosing your size!
S: 14" elastic, 18.5" hips, 14" side seam
M: 15" elastic, 20" hips, 15" side seam

CUSTOM: these will fit you, because I make them for you.
Materials & Care: Cotton/spandex with linen/organic cotton trim. Optimally worn while engaging in summer activities, including beach sports or lawn chair loafing with an ice cold drink in hand. Also with your hands, wash these when they need it (or machine wash gentle, it's all good) and hang to dry.
