Columbia Shorts - Part 1 (Research)

Columbia's shorts have pockets like blue jeans - scooped low in front, and two pointed ones in back. There are no darts in front, and a single dart on each back piece (tapering behind the pocket). I've never found a pattern with all of these attributes, so be prepared to make some alterations. Blue Jean patterns offer a similar fit, but you'll probably have to remedy the horizontal panel above the back pockets and drop in a vertical dart there.

Shorts Side

It's my opinion that her ribbons are all the same size, except the thin ones are merely folded in half. That's why the thin ones appear to only have one "edging".

I've been able to duplicate the effect with a few rolls of scotch tape and coordinating colors of glittery fabric paint, but it is a serious pain in the ass.

Shorts (Ribbon Detail)

Satin ribbons are durable, and by far the easiest to find. You can often find metallic ribbon in limited colors, but orange seems to be the most elusive. Metallic ribbons will not last as long - they are craft ribbon, and not intended for wearing.

Getting all the colors in order is exhausting. I started by looking at photos and cross-referencing the Anal Costume Site. Here's what I've come up - but I still recommend everyone should confirm their own research.
