You don’t have to give up comfort for the sake of elegance. The Orion shorts are as easy to wear as your denim shorts, but they will give your outfit a much more polished look. I’ve always loved vintage cuts, and this one reminds me of old movies, bicycle rides and afternoons on the beach…

Available sizes: 2 to 16.

Fabric choice: there are a lot of possibilities for this pattern. Different fabrics will create very different styles: broadcloth, chambray, lightweight denim, poplin, chino, seersucker, linen, but also crepes, suiting fabric… Make sure your fabric doesn’t crease easily: this is important for professional-looking shorts.

You will need: interfacing in the right weight for your fabric, matching thread for your fabric, scissors, pins, a marking pen, a machine needle that fits your fabric type, lining for pockets if you choose to add them, and four 0.6’’ (1.5cm) buttons or a 10’’ (25cm) invisible zipper.
