These pants are a great cut and a great fit. Straight forward instructions. The slit pockets always scare me and they’re by far the most complicated aspect of this pattern. If you get out the measuring tape, they’re actually 1cm out of balance but when the pants are on you can’t really tell. All i can say is spend the time perfecting the pockets and the rest is a cinch.
I’ll definitely be making more of these pants. They’re a good staple and look excellent on.
The fabric is polyester suiting – a splurge at $20p/m, so the pants cost me $40.
