Gingham Iris Shorts

Gingham Iris Shorts

I love these shorts!ย Another pair of Colette Iris shorts done, just in time for hot summer weather. They are made from Lecien’s yarn-dyed gingham check, which I underlined with a soft white cotton for more body.

A change I made to the pattern this time around was to increase the hem depth. The 5/8″ hem on the first pair just seemed skimpy compared to the other RTW shorts I have. The final hem depth here is 1″ and I’m pleased with that.
