Finding vintage textiles in purple is such a unicorn! I have a giant stash of vintage towels and I had one solid purple in the whole lot of it. I’ve been holding onto it waiting for the perfect towel to come along and be it’s partner and it finally happened. I’m a little sad to send my one and only purple towel to it’s new home but it’s meant for adventures so I’m excited! This pair has the best vibrant colors, fantastic textures and side seam pockets!
I try to give my best guess on the sizing but encourage you to always use your measurements. It can be tricky to measure your own body and add in enough extra space for ease and such so my best advice is to measure something you already have and love the fit of. That being said, based on the measurements, these shorts would likely be best for someone who generally wears a L/XL depending on how you like the fit.
The materials I use are vintage and will show some wear and minor imperfections. This is a beautiful patina that comes from years of love and mending. Any major imperfections are carefully repaired through visible mending. My goal is first to make you a garment that is sturdy af and will last a lifetime and second, a one of a kind piece of wearable art. I recommend washing your new garment on a gentle cycle and laying flat to dry. Thank you for being part of Mother Nature’s Army by supporting slow fashion.
