This is the first time I made a pair of men’s pants! The fabric is delicious black linen that I bought in Swany, Kamakura. The width of the fabric is 145 cm, but there was only 1.1 m left, not enough for a full length pants. Fortunately, my husband is all into cropped pants now, he started to roll up his other pants, so here’s some real cropped pants for him!
I use blue nani IRO double-gauze fabric for pocket and waistband linings. I like how they are completely hidden when he’s wearing the pants, and can only be seen when he takes something out of the pockets (or takes the pants off). The double piping pockets were quite a challenge! But I think the results are quite acceptable. The fly zipper is okay, but the waistband is not as neat as I want it to be. I should practice more!
