Because it has been so cold here lately, I needed some pants to keep my legs warm. My usual weekend attire involves jeans, but they are not suitable for work so I needed something a little more work appropriate but didn't want to resort to dress pants which really are not me at all. Tessuti Anita Ponti Pants proved to be just what I needed. This is the third time I have made these pants. The first being my printed ponti pair and the second a pair I made in grey wool ponti for my mother. I found the printed pair to be a little short in the rise at the back and a little long in the front so for this pair I altered the rise by 2cm longer at the back and 2cm shorter at the front. I also made the legs slimmer from the knees down.
There really isn't a lot to say about these pants. They are extremely comfortable to wear with the elastic waist and because they are made of ponti as opposed to lycra, they are dressier and more trouser like than leggings, perfect for casual Friday. I actually wouldn't mind a plain black pair. All I need to do is find some decent ponti!
