Pants for my son. The pattern is Ice Pop from Tamanegi Kobo (Japanese pattern shop), which is a banana cut pants, or at least that is how they are called in Japan. I don’t really know why it is called banana pants, but it has twisted seams down the legs that make the legs bent slightly. Like the shape of banana, I suppose.
The pants has flat front with button and zipper and elasticated back waist. Unfortunately it is for size 140-160, so I did a little homework downgrading it to size 130. My amateur downgrading turned out quite okay I think. The crotch could have been lowered a bit and the front pockets need to be larger but everything else is good. I added colorful trim around the pockets for added interest.
