These kitten shorts are upcycled from a vintage hand embroidered crib “blanket”. It’s a lightweight linen and these are not lined, so there are the exposed threads from the embroidery on the inside. Because of the embroidery, I recommend that these shorts be hand washed and laid flat to dry to keep the stitchwork in beautiful condition for years to come. Hand washing is a commitment so I like to make an extra note when something needs that level of care. These little cuties have an elastic waist and a cute little back pocket.
I 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.
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.
