Construction techniques: Zip fly construction with binding finishing, semi elasticated waistband, side pockets with french seam finishing, front pleats, flat felled seams and hemming.

Suitable fabrics: This piece is predominantly designed to work with linens and light cottons, however there is also scope to play with heavier fabrics. Starting at the lighter end of the scale, linens and lightweight cottons are ideal for this piece. Silk and tencel are also great options for a more floaty and sophisticated look. If you want to make a wintery pair, this cut works well in a heavy brushed twill or a corduroy.
