The Pietra Pants & Shorts are the best of both worlds;a flat front, high-waisted silhouette with the comfortof an elastic waist in the back. Featuring lengthening panels in the front with slanted hip pockets and ahidden waist stay, you'll never want to take them off.
Choose between four leg styles: a wide leg in floor skimming or cropped length (View A), a slim and tapered leg (View B), or gently flared shorts (View C).
This pattern can be made with a variety of fabrics depending on the desired effect. For a more defined shape, use structured wovens such as linen, chambray, or lightweight denim or twill (heavyweight wovens may create too much volume at the elastic waist). For a swishy, glamorous look, use rayon challis, tencel, or silk.
