Dispite being “very easy” it took me about five days to get the fittings right.
The legs were way, way too wide, so I took them in at least an inch on both side seams. The legs are still pleny breezy and nice and comfortable in warm weather.
I get a lot of compliments on these pants. Usually, from older men wearing Navy hats. :)
Heavy honey-comb cotton that was $18 per yard. This pattern takes 2 1/2 yards! I’ve laid the pattern pieces out over 1 1/2 yards and if you’re a size 13 or less and willing to take an inch off the side seams, I’m 90% sure 1 1/2 yards would work.
The end result was worth it since they’re unique and couldn’t find what I wanted in the stores.
