My take on the Military Pants and yet another version of my Sonja top adaptation with a feminine touch at the bottom. I love the camouflage/swimming pool tile effect which you may not see clearly.
Swimming pool tiles=SUMMER!!

Anyway, the pants are super comfortable, and this was my first attempt on an actuall front zipped cargo, also as you can see on the back I created double welted pockets which requires some skills but I googled and found a great tutorial how to create flawless welted pockets if you are interested, click here:

For the front zip, click here:

Ps.: Birkenstocks became essential part of my life…so comfy I bought 4 pairs so far…
