Inspired by a couple of other versions out there, I took a stab at making my own skinny cargoes. The starting pattern was Jalie 2908, but altered out of all recognition by this point.

There was a LOT of topstitching!

    Love reading canadian brand shops here, makes me all nostalgic. You did a great job on these, they fit your figure and style very well.

      The red shirt is Suzy Shier, actually (although I agree, it could totally have come from le chateau!)
