I actually started these shorts a little while ago, but my involvement in some secret projects (which I will reveal sometime after August 8th) has prevented me from finishing them until today. They are based on this pattern from burda style. I’ve used this pattern before to make some black linen pants, and it is pretty swell if you are looking for something high-waisted. They’re meant to fit really loose, so I took them down a size, and they fit perfectly. The only downside to pleated silk shorts is they poof up in an awkward way when I sit down, so I will probably try to only wear them to events where I will not be sitting. Ha! Still, I am excited to wear them! So many of the high-waisted shorts in stores (including a few pairs I own) are crazy short, so I’m glad to have a more conservative option. I can’t rock booty shorts all the time, guys (despite what my husband says).

  1. Once you get a good pants pattern sized just right NEVER LOSE it or throw it away. Copy it onto interfacing! And then don’t gain any wieght.
