For this box, you get to pick two fabrics, one for the pants, one for the shorts!
Turquoise Creped Viscose Linen - This fabric, with a textured creped face, is mostly viscose, giving it amazing softness and drape, with just the right amount of linen for structure and body. Combined, you get a fabric that feels light and airy and perfect for August heat. In a bright turquoise, you can make a pair of statement pants or a fun pair of shorts that will be perfect for the beach or park.
Mulberry Tencel Twill - This Tencel has brilliant drape which makes it ideal for creating a drapier version on these pants. In a deep mulberry hue, reminiscent of red clay, this fabric is earthy and rich. The stunning color will really shine with this pattern and you'll shine in these pants!
Black Silk Noil - If you're going to make a pair of black pants, why not make them out of silk, amirite? With a slight numbly texture, this noil fabric has a mildly crisp drape that will work really well for shorts or the wide leg version of the pants. Plus, because it's silk, you'll have a pair of pants that you can dress up for fancier occasions or dress down for everyday wear. An all around versatile pair of trousers!
Textured Navy Silk Noil - Like the black silk noil, this fabric has the same crisper drape and light hand, but with the added bonus of a woven texture, akin to a basketweave, to add some extra depth and interest. In a saturated navy hue, this fabric will transform into a simply stunning pair of shorts or pants!
Black Organic Cotton/Hemp Woven - We've used the striped version of this fabric before and it has been a crowd favorite. The lighter weight fabric has a soft, buttery hand, and great visual interest with the chambray weave. In a simple black-white weave, the fabric looks like a lovely heathered grey. This fabric is a great summer weight option if you're looking to make a pair of pants or shorts for the hotter months of the year.
Avocado Green Washed Linen - This fabric is all about the color! The avocado green is super saturated and veers towards lime in certain lights. A bold choice, this fabric will make a killer pair of pants or shorts and will certainly make a statement. Plus, the linen has an antique washed finish that gives it a full bodied drape and soft hand. A sumptuous fabric choice in an unexpected hue!
