Solana Beach, Ca...
I very rarely wear these pants because I tend toward very casual clothes… but when I do wear them, I feel oh so sassy! The pattern is an old but goody – Number 119 from April 2006. The construction is quite simple except the fit is quite important. The hidden side zipper make the pants very sleek. Although I used a super inexpensive cotton blend, the lay of the pattern makes the pants look quite expensive. I would recommend this pattern for fancy dressing up (perhaps with an embroidery design peaking out from the pleats) to the sightly more casual.
