If you want to explore making the shorts then we recommend light to medium weight woven fabrics like Rayon*, light weight linen*, cotton* and cotton blends (cotton/viscose and cotton/polyester). Our black shorts are made up in rayon, with a length of black lace sewn on to the bottom hem.
*be sure to pre-wash fabrics like rayon, linen and cotton which can shrink up to 10%. You will need to take this into account when buying your fabric.
