These Ellen pants were really easy to make. I used some khaki cotton my mum found in her stash, but couldn’t remember what she bought it for. So I got new trousers – Hooray!
I shifted the pockets down a bit, because I felt they were too close to the waistband. I used some fun left-over cotton print for the backing of the pocket flaps as a surprise when you open them. The fit is fairly good, although I took them in a bit at the hip and upper thigh (about 5mm on each side). I wear them all the time, the best sign of a good make!
