Pink trousers!

Added Jan 18, 2012

Costa Mesa, Cali...






I originally wanted to make these navy or army green, but I found this perfect pale pink and I realized I needed to have pink trousers!
The pattern was so much fun to make with welt pockets (being the first time I ever insert them into a garment).
The pattern instructions I found to be a little confusing at times, but over all a very fun project, and now I want to make a few more pairs in all kinds of fun colors.
I omitted the zippers deciding that I preferred to keep these pants long and rolled up

      Thank you!
      Well, I imagine they would definitely look good on you, because they look good on the burdastyle models and I am pretty sure they are also very tall ;>
