Description

So, I needed some lightweight pants to wear when traveling in warm weather. Lightweight denim seems like an ideal fabric for this purpose: it breathes, it does not wrinkle too much, and it does not show dirt (in case I spill my tea on it on the airplane or something). I also wanted the pants to be kind of loose (for comfort) and styled as trousers (less technical to sew than straight-on jeans). There is actually a special model for jeans (#106) in this magazine, but I chose to use the pants pattern (#105) and make it in denim.

P.S. I think this style looks a lot like Bella pants pattern on Burdastyle!
