these are funny! surprisingly flattering; particularly in the rear view - a combination of the folded wide waist, the dropped crotch and then tapering to the slim ankles (i think it is actually the latter detail which clinches the flattering form). these have been developed from a previous fisherman style pants pattern (with many versions about of late).
as you can see, my version are destined for pyjama pants - not as adventurous as some for public display. more for reasons of fabric than design. although i am considering a pair in charcoal with perhaps a fine pinstripe widely spaced (the vertical lines assist the lengthening shape to the legs).
and speaking of pyjamas, tom and i have been working on a new pair of summer boxer shorts this morning. watch out for him on that presser foot!
