This is a PRE-ORDER for shorts that are currently in production (the images are of the cut pieces as sent to our team of sewists). They will be shipped by July 22nd. Photos will not be sent prior to then!
✿ Artisan made with love and care: designed and cut by Dani Des Roches in NC and sewn by skilled garment workers in NYC. Our garment workers are experienced sewists and tailors who are paid a living wage to bring these one-of-a-kind wearable art pieces to life.✿
These shorts are one-of-a-kind and made from vintage cotton towels and vintage cotton fabric (for the pocket bags). These shorts were designed with the sideseam slightly forward so that the pockets don't sit directly on your sides - great if you don't want to add extra bulk to your hips, and it's super comfortable, to boot!

Please take extra care with reviewing the measurements for the shorts as we can't make exchanges or take returns per the one-of-a-kind nature of the items. We suggest finding a similar garment in your closet, laying it flat, and measuring against the specs.
*Please note, you want your waist measurement to be somewhere in between the relaxed and stretched measurements. Too close to the relaxed measurement and they will be loose! The waist fits a range but pay special attention to the hip and thigh measurements since there is no stretch there! These are not meant to fit tight so make sure there is some "ease" (i.e. some extra width in the hip and thigh).
