i wanted some colette clover-like trousers. i had this issue in the stash and this pattern is already petite. i cut a size 19 at the waist grading to an 18 at the hips. i made a lapped zip and moved it to the back. i shortened the legs and narrowed at the ankles slightly. i prefer fly front pants with front pockets so if i make them again i’ll make major modifications. i thought i wanted a pair of white pants for summer but i don’t know if i’ll wear these much. i feel self-conscious in them. more notes are on the blog
