Project Pants!

As I mentioned earlier, my husband really enjoys all my sewing projects (including digging through the pattern file cabinets in Joann’s, chiming in while picking out fabrics, listening to me talk about new ideas), so he was pretty excited about the idea of me making some pants for him to wear to work. He is tall and one time we found some Ted Baker pants on sale at Nordstrom Rack. They fit great, were really well made (fancy lining!) and they were a pretty unique color of burgundy. But, without the sale, these pants are outside of our price point. So, I decided to try and make some!

First, the Green pants! Mood had a wonderful army green cotton that felt like a Chino. I also used some of the leftover fabric from his Dad’s US Open shirt to make the pocket lining!

This was my second try at welt pockets (following the shorts) and the sizing between the patters was way different :/ I don’t think I’m measuring him properly. Either way, I adjusted it by adding some little side panels that kind of looked like a tuxedo stripe. I really like them. They’re getting a little bit worn now which I think is making them look cooler.
