The Brooklyn pants not in a church basementMay 23, 2017 / byBarbara / Categories : Feeds
I realize that the down in the church basement shots of my last post were not particularly edifying, so I had some more pictures taken. One in the front yard at home in Halifax and the other one in my mom's porch in Winnipeg.
These knit pants are obviously ideal for traveling.
I love them, something you probably were not able to do when you saw the original dark shots. They are super comfortable. I like the stylish new leg shape. Excellent pockets, trim waist, and to tell you the truth that slightly lower crotch is really comfortable. The only construction change I made was to flatten the elastic for about 8 " at centre front in the waistband casing and sew a vertical seam up either end to make sure there were not discernible gathers over my belly.
Suffice it to say that my 18 year old niece has asked me to make a pair for her - I went out and just got fabric to do that today in fact. 18 year olds generally do not want to dress exactly like me, which might surprise you.
So here are some updated shots. I am wearing them with a bamboo knit Marie-Claude top from Jalie, more on that pattern later.
In the meantime lets give these pants another chance:
