Christmas presents for my sisters-in-law! I actually bought a Simplicity pattern for these, but realized how awful it was after cutting them out. I added cuffs to the legs, satin trim in the seams, and a pocket, along with a drawstring and elastic. Amazingly they fit really really well (working with no measurements or sizes at all!)
The yellow pair needed to be lengthened because she’s taller, so I did the cuffs a bit differently. I also tried out some flat felled seams on the outer leg seams! They’re fun :) The pics were taken before elastic…
