The best pants

Hello pants! I mean hello friends! These are just as wonderful and crazy as I had hoped they would be.I knew that I needed photos that did them justice, so I took photos at the ROM. The sunlight was so wonderful! And the ROM is a cool-ass building.

This fabric, from, is silk with a little bit of width-wise stretch. It feels so nice! I'm glad it has a little give because the hens are very narrow. I stitched the hem with a double needle to keep a little of the stretch.

I used this pattern from BurdaStyle, but I changed so many things!

  • added pockets!
  • shortened by 4 1/2"
  • reduced the curve of the side seams
  • made more than half of the waistband elasticated (half was not enough!)
  • lengthened the back crotch seam and shortened the front crotch seam

FYI, it was windy. I was trying to work it. Right?

I can't wait for the weather to get nice so I can wear them all the time!

Edit: these are made with the Burda Style Elastic Waist Pants 10/2015
