I picked this pattern because I really liked the interesting seaming on these - not that anyone can really see it here. I was intending to make them cropped which is how I like to wear pants in the summer, but I liked how they looked at the longer length too and thought stuff it, I'll just roll them up when I want them shorter.
Close up of front seam detail
This pattern has no side seam but does have seams on the front and back leg so there is scope for adjusting the fit of the leg. Actually I found these to be a pretty good fit as they were, except for one thing which should have been obvious to me...the waistband is straight when I really need a curved one.
However I had stupidly already attached and trimmed the waistband seam so I fudged it by putting a few tiny darts into the waistband and taking it in at the centre back where there is a seam.
Other than the waistband "fix" the other change was to leave off the front leg horizontal seams and back welt pockets out of sheer laziness really as I knew I'd never use them and they wouldn't show up anyhow.
My fabric is a lightweight denim with some stretch, really nice which is good because I have lots more of it left.
The instructions were surprisingly good, even the fly front instructions made sense!
These aren't perfect, there's a bit of extra fabric in the upper front that kind of puffs out when I sit down in them and I probably need to go down a size, but they are probably still a better fit than anything I can find in RTW so maybe there will be more pants popping up here in future.
