This is the second pair of khaki capri pants I made for myself this week, but you get to see only one. Someday I'll dig out the other pair from the ball they're in and salvage the fabric for some small person pants. They fit well. The zipper went in nicely. Sadly, my serger ate them and, unlike sewing machines, sergers have knives. My first Mrs. Stylebook garment will have to make its debut another time.
I put the disaster aside and tried an entirely different pattern - this time Ottobre 2-2002-40.
I suppose this style might be a little dated, since the pattern's 8 years old - yet not old enough to be vintage, heh! But I think it turned out all right, except the back pockets seem a little large.
I used a nice stretch twill ($1.99/yd with coupon) from Mill End Textiles plus a random zipper from a HomeSew zipper assortment, which makes these $3 pants. The top is the very first garment I made for myself two years ago. I still wear it, even though I laugh at its quirky construction.
