Sydney Again., A...
I found this linen on one of my stash hunts and LOVED it.
I didn’t realise the stripes were going horizontal until I went to make my pants but added “who cares” to the pattern and made it verticle.
I copied a pair of beach pants I bought a few months ago.
It took ages to cut them out making sure the stripes were the same colour on the outside leg seams.
Also matching up the pockets to the stripes.
Linen is actually very tricky to work with, it wiggles a lot.
Also added trim to the pockets to give more strength.
I will wear them on days when my 2 yr old wakes up in a bad mood
