And here I was, once more in need of a pair of casual, but office-friendly pants
So, for the 3rd time now, I dug out my Wearing History's Smooth Sailing pants pattern...but I made a few changes to the pattern. Here they are :
- I took the waist in and removed 1 inch from it ;
- I added pockets (which I'm not sure was a good idea as I had to insert a side seam zipper, but it works! However, my pockets being far too narrow for me to put my hands in it comfortably, I'll have to re-draft them if I make another version - which is highly likely) ;
- I made 4 tucks at the front instead of 2 ;
- I doubled the width of the waistband, which results in a much more high-waisted looks and allows me (see picture below for evidence) to wear my "breton-top-which-used-to-be-a-skirt" without flashing my belly! Yay!

Well, I'll leave you for now and go back to my Hawthorn muslin for the Oufit Along! Bye everybody!
