Description

I had a metre of denim fabric in my stash (actually it was more like unshaved corduroy) that I planned to make a high-waisted skirt with. But recently I changed my mind and wanted to make a pair of pants with it.

The pattern is Evan from Tamanegi-Kobo, a Japanese pattern shop, bought as PDF pattern. I use size 38 on waist and 36 on hip. This is not the first time I bought PDF pattern from Tamanegi-Kobo. The instructions are naturally in Japanese, but it has lots of pictures and diagrams that are clear enough. I noticed that several other patterns already have instructions in English, so it would be easier if you want to try.

The fabric is not very thick so sewing them was quite easy. One metre of the fabric is just enough for a pair of pants for me. I had to piece the back waistband and used other fabric for pocket linings though. I used thicker thread in rust color for topstitching. The pocket linings are green cotton with chicken pattern, so fun! The zipper fly area and waistband facing are finished with red seam bindings. I didn’t like metal zipper because I feel that they left a particular of metal (of course!) smell when I touch them, so I used regular plastic zipper.

The pants are very comfortable, I can see that I will be wearing them a lot!

    They look great on you!! I really love this kind of pants, althought I think they’d never fit me as well as to you. Congratulations!!
