Linen classic trousers

I needed to do another test run of my trouser pattern, and deciced to do them in this linen that I had in my stash. This was also my first attempt to put proper lining in trousers, for which I used some purple poly, also from the stash.

I’m pleased with the result, although I did make some mistakes, and I found out about some improvements that I will make to the pattern.

These are based on this pattern

    I like your pants. I am trying to make some of these for my husband and I was wondering about this king of lining. I’ve seen it in some of his pants. What’s the deal with it? Why only the front and why only half lined. Does it cover the knee? Thank you!

      Thank you. One mistake: I made the welt pockets too narrow ;)
