This work-a-day fabric has a storied (literally) and celebrity history
Time for a little did-you-know, KBEnthusiasts! I fell in love with these shorts for the crisp navy and blue check and the just-right inseam.*
But did you know that gingham as a pattern is about more than just it's cool summer looks? It originated as a stripe pattern in France before being imported to England and evolving into the check we recognize today.
It is inexpensive and often used like muslin for fit tests before creating a garment in a pricier print. That humble metier didn't stop Brigitte Bardot from wearing pink and white gingham for her wedding, or inspiring poetry.
The inseam on these babies is 5" which generally is a universally great length -- it gets those gams out with getting bunched up (if you know what I mean). ;)
