Hi, Melissa here! I recently made this pair of Colette's Iris shorts out of the strawberry-patterned French General fabric. When these shorts first came out, I knew I wanted to make them. When I saw Jaime's Miz Mozelle dress made out of this fabric, it was like a match made in heaven. I knew shorts would be the perfect thing for me made with the French General.
I decided to make version 2 of the shorts, but since I wanted to have these amazing over sized red buttons I didn't make the pockets with buttonholes. These are the kind of buttons that need to be seen!
If you see me strutting in these shorts, know that it is because I was triumphant in the face of sewing strife. Plus they are super comfy, which can't often be said of short shorts. So don't be afraid of sewing these or any other of Colette's amazing patterns, we will be here to hold your hand.
