You asked for more shorts! We wanted to give you something different than the shorts already in the Seamwork catalog. These shorts have a cool, fun silhouette with a touch of vintage inspiration. Think the nineties do the forties. The Effie shorts are very classic at first glance, with a high waist and A-line fit. However, they also have little special design moments, like reoccurring curves in the pocket, hem, and waistband.
Talia is wearing size 10 Effie shorts with no adjustments. Her measurements are 39” (99 cm), 30” (70.2 cm), 41 1/2” (105.4 cm), and she is 5’9 1/2” (1.77 m) tall.
Crosby is wearing curvy size 16 Effie shorts. We shortened the rise 1” (2.5 cm) and reduced the waist ease 1/2” (12 mm). Her measurements are 46” (116.8 cm), 36 1/2” (92.7 cm), 48” (121.9), and she is 5’10” (1.78 m) tall.
