Description

I wanted colorful pants for the spring and summer season, and came across these beautiful mint green cotton fabric.
I had some striped fabric with the same green, which I used for the pockets.
I intentionally used a color that would stand out for the bias part. I know no one will see it, but gives some excitement when you wear them.

This was my second time putting on zippers, but worked out pretty nicely, now that I understand how it’s constructed.

The original pattern had a double cuff, but I shortened it to make it single, and wear them rolled up.
I didn’t make a button hole, but used a large snap button instead.

Pattern from Tamanegi-kobo
Instructions are in Japanese, but the website is in English, and there are some free patterns!
