To sew the shorts, choose suiting fabrics with the following properties:

- medium weight, soft, non-stretch, structured

- the fiber content can include natural fibers (wool, cotton, linen, silk), artificial fibers (viscose), blends (wool + silk, wool + polyester, cotton + viscose, etc.), and synthetics (polyester, polyester + elastane)

- the following fabrics are recommended: denim, fine wale corduroy, cotton, linen

 

Attention! We do not recommend stretchy knit fabrics and lightweight sheer fabrics (chiffon, organza, stretch lace).

 

For the lining, fabrics that include natural fibers (cotton, sateen, batiste) and artificial fibers (viscose) are recommended.

 

The shorts in the photo are made of denim. The fabric is heavy-weight, structured. The fabric stretches due to the weave. The fiber content is 100% cotton.

 

The lining is 100% cotton.
