Rita Shorts

August 15, 2012


Summer is the perfect time for shorts and these shorts are so fun! (Yes, they are shorts!). I used Wearing History’s Rita pleated shorts pattern.


They are crazy fun to wear and I’m so wishing that I’d made them earlier in the summer!



The pattern is based off of late 30s/early 40s pleated shorts. They look awesome with 40s styling like a fun peasant blouse and cute wedges. Construction details and a pattern review are available on my blog. You can snag your own copy of this pattern here.
