I made these as a mock up for a pair I’m making for my husband. I wanted to test the waters first. I thought these were the perfect summer pants to lounge in. I used some navy/blue striped fabric from my stash that were unisex in pattern. I used the selvage edge as my tie, I liked the raw edge of it. I tried to match up the stripes, but it was really hard. I added a small pocket big enough to fit a cellphone or ipod. The top waist piece of fabric I did a felled seam in the back to make it more presentable. The funny thing is my husband wants his in pink linen/cotton striped. The pattern turned out perfect for him, he might want them a little shorter due to it’s really hot here.
Again I had to take the pics myself and my husband wouldn’t let me take pictures of him, yet.
I’m thinking about trying a pair in a dressy fabric and make a pair of evening cocktail hour Thai Fisherman pants…just thinking!
