OK, in fairness, I lost track after three and a half.
You definitely can't tell by the expression on my face but these pants are so comfortable! Made with a lovely soft linen.Making
them sure wasn't comfortable, though. Maybe it's because I've been biking so much but I really struggled with the fit on these and I used three different self-drafted contoured waistbands before I got the right fit. I'm like the Goldilocks of contoured waistbands.
It doesn't help that I actually made my first version before I found this amazing tutori
al on how to add structure to the waistband. With the contouring, I ended up with some bias-y stuff going on and getting stretched out. There were also some unpleasant times where the back seam seemed to be trying to crawl between my butt cheeks. Thank God that's fixed!
I really wish I had pics of the insides, because I'm really proud of the finishing on these. I flat felled the inseam, french seamed the outer leg seam and put bias binding on everything else. Pretty snappy!
Too bad the weather has really turned now, and I probably won't have a chance to wear them again until the spring.
