Super slim, cigarette style cropped pants. Made from thick stretch cotton drill. I added belt loops and inserted a side lapped zipper, as I was a little worried about how an invisible zipper would fair with such thick fabric.
Regarding the pattern, I found it to be quite easy and well fitted from the outset. I cut an 18 and a 19 waist, but think the ease caught me off as there’s a little more built in to the pants than what I wanted. Because of this I took in the side seams by about 1cm each side, but that was easy. I also had to make modifications to the waistband for fit, courtesy of my lack of waist shape, but that is a standard alteration for me, so no complaint there.
I’m so happy with these pants, I think I will make them again, but maybe using colour!
