I bought this stretch cotton sateen to make summer capri length pants but time got away on me and now they have been made considerably longer for the cooler weather. The colours I feel are more condusive to winter wear anyway.
Using my TNT Sewaholic Thurlow pattern, I extended the legs and included the back welt pockets. Because the fabric is quite stretchy, I lined the waistband with leftover black non stretch cotton denim. I also aded buttons and buttonholes to the back welt pockets to prevent gaping.
There really isn't a lot more to add that I haven't said before when it comes to this pattern. I like the fit these pants produce so am not tempted to try another pattern. I do feel though it may be time to mix it up a bit and add some different details to this pants pattern.
One thing I did find with this version in stretch cotton sateen, is they grew as the day progressed. I don't have a huge problem with the looser fit though, because loose printing pants are the trend at the moment and a trend I haven't yet been game enough to try. Inadvertently I get the best of both worlds!
