Neutral Pants

I finished another pair of pants for my life-sized wardrobe today – these grey linen ones!

The author stands in front of a brick-walled garden bed at the base of a fence, both covered in plants. She wears a pair of bluish-grey linen pants with a dark pink shirt and purple shoes. The pants have a solid waistband, four pleats in the front, and diagonally-opening pockets. She carries a novel in one hand and has the other tucked into a pocket.

I used the Simplicity 8457 pattern again, and I am really happy with them – they look so neat and professional, and the invisible zip is mostly invisible!

The pockets are also sitting flatter than my first pair, which is an added bonus.

They’re a nice neutral colour, so I can wear pretty much any shirt I want with them. I also have heaps of scraps, and some of them look like they could be doll-sized…. (Which is a nice bonus about making my own clothes – it’s (sort of) free miniature sewing fabric!)

Anyways, see ya!
