Den Haag, Nether...
after I had made yet another pair of jeans, I wanted to make a pair of trousers that would stand up to use in slightly more formal situations as well. It’s not really anything fancy, but I really love these. They’re my first self-designed trousers in a fabric with stretch in it, and I narrowed the pattern to make use of that. I made front pockets and single bound pockets with buttons at the back. The with is to the waist (with a wide waistband) with leg flaring out from mid-thigh.
fairly sturdy cotton with stretch, zipper, buttons
