My darling husband has an obsession with wide wale corduroy. So I made him a pair of pants last weekend. I just based it on a pair of jeans that I bought him that were too big and have darts in. The pattern looked weird to me but it worked! He loves them as they feel like he’s wearing pj’s. sigh I’d do a few things differently next time (and I’m assured there will be a next time), I’d triple check the pile was the right way (double checking was apparently not enough! So ashamed!) and add more stiffening in the waistband and fly overlap. I’m pretty proud this only took me 3.5 hours to draft, cut out, sew, fit and finish. On a side note, I apologise if you now need therapy after viewing these photos…..
