These trousers are designed with cool summer evenings in mind or for those days when there is a cool breeze in the air. Made from a lightweight fabric these cropped trousers hit just below the knee. They feature a decorative tied sash at the waist and are secured with a zip and button combination at the front of the design. The button is subsequently hidden underneath the sash. There is an optional pocket featured on one hip. The end of each trouser leg has a split in it which is secured together with two buttons.

The bottom edge of the trouser leg has two buttons which are used to fasten the edges of the trouser together. This is particularly useful if you wish to paddle in the sea without getting the trousers wet. Simply undo the buttons and role the trousers up so they are above the knee. Plus, it just looks pretty!


The pocket has an unusual shape which complements some decorative stitching which is featured in a shape that is similar to that of an ice cream sundae. The sash is also curved along its bottom edge giving it a more relaxed wave-like shape. Both these features are designed to maintain a continuity with the seaside/beach theme.


As the design is for lightweight fabric and is cropped below the knee they are ideal for relaxing at the beach and ideal for summer holidays. They will also be a useful part of your wardrobe in both the spring and autumn seasons while the weather is cool but not cold enough to yet want your winter coat.


With the beach theme in mind I have chosen colours in ice cream shades that remind me of childhood holidays by the sea.

Thank you ever so much for your comments! It is really lovely to hear other peoples ideas and get feedback on my designs. I think that idea for the sash is fab it would be so cute to have it made up in two different fabrics. Two looks in one! Thanks kaitui_kiwi for such a great idea.

Love the sash shape, it could be removable/two sided, self fabric on one side and contrast on the other for a different look!
