Myra needed some hippy chick jeans to go with her crazy neon shirt, so I hunted through my Ottobre's to find a flare leg pant pattern in her size.
Perfect! I LOVE the little pockets, which I think have a very 60s feel. They are on the back as well.
I skipped the trim on the hems. I wanted them to be a little more versatile.
But I did line the pocket flaps with the scraps of her shirt. You can also see that I added some jean-style topstitching, which is all that "fly" is - topstitching.
The fit isn't perfect. They are a little baggy up front,
but she has some serious gaposis in the back! She was sleeping when I was making them, so I couldn't measure her waist, and I guess she's slimmed down a little since the last time I measured her. I still think they are pretty darn cute, and will be a good addition to her wardrobe. The pattern went together really quickly, since it is just a very simple pair of elastic waist pants with four patch pockets. What's not to like?
