This is my first ever pair of (finished) pants. Made with an un-waled grey corduroy and with a straight leg, I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out.
The pattern was traced from an old pair of jeans that fitted well through the crotch but I otherwise no longer liked; their waistband was too low and I was over the flared legs.
My blog post can be found on my blog, as well as a tutorial for copying your own pants pattern from an existing pair.
Un-waled corduroy, blend of cotton and a teensy bit of lycra for stretch
