Ok, so pants are hard to fit! But I really wanted a high waisted wide leg pants, so I gave it a try. I was aiming for a fit that elongate my legs, and made my waist look smaller. I based the pattern on a vintage pattern I’ve inherited from my grandmother, and chose a dusty green jersey-like fabric. The pants turned out really comfy, and the fit wasn’t too bad after a number if alteration. Still, it will be a while until I make a pair of pants again ;-).
