seersucker summer pants

Seersucker summer pants, originally uploaded by super eggplant.

So maybe not the best photo, but you get the gist. These are wide-legged, comfy pants with a side zipper (invisible zipper!) and butt darts. The pattern is from, yes, a Japanese craft magazine. I used the cotton seersucker I got at the outdoor sale at Fabric Deep-oh.

The pants turned out to be a bit too big, so I had to take in quite a bit from the front and back seams. They were still too loose, though, so then I ended up having to, um, safety pin a little tuck. No matter, because they are very comfortable. Super quick and easy to make, so I think more pairs are in my future!

    Now I just want to say butt darts. It’s funny, especially if you say it a lot of times in a row.

    Both these pants and the shirt in the previous post look so comfy and nice! I’m interesting in knowing where the patterns you used for them are found–maybe I am missing them from a publication I already have–the clothes often look different on a real person than in the book’s/magazine’s styled photo. Thanks!
