The Chanterelle Pants and Shorts are the casual bottoms that can take a starring role in your wardrobe – dressed up in bright colors and fancy fabrics, casual in lightweight denim, or easy and cozy in soft fabrics.

Fabric Recommendations

We recommend a light- to medium-weight woven fabric that has no stretch.

The drape or hand of the fabric will impact the look of the final garment. Softer fabrics will fall more gently, and more stable fabrics will emphasize the leg shaping. Some wonderful choices are chambray, viscose-linen slub, sandwashed linen or cotton, ikat, Brussels washer linen, light twill (like Ventana twill), or Essex cotton-linen blend.

Recommended fabrics are opaque, and range in weight from 4.8 oz to 7.9 oz (155 – 268 GSM).

For specific fabrics, you can shop EWE Fine Fiber’s curated fabrics for the Chanterelle Pants pattern.
