There are a lot of time-consuming details here, but I'm sure when I make these for Peter, they'll go much faster. I procrastinated a bit because I knew the fly zipper was looming, but with the excellent instructions and a small amount of cumulative experience, the zipper went very smoothly. Actually, I think it's easier to make a fly zipper look nice than an invisible zip.
The pattern is from Ottobre 4-2008-33. It calls for buttonholes and snaps on all those pockets, but I opted for metal jeans snaps - a much faster process, and neater, considering my machine's wretched buttonhole stitch.
The fit is perfect - with a little extra length, which I'm sure he'll need before long.
These pants are the first item in the SWAP I have planned for the boys. I have the same material ("Rough Rider" brushed twill from fabric.com) in khaki ready for Peter's pair.
