My project changed form and I ended up with a very utilitarian pair of elastic waist pants, instead of the stunning smart casual pants I wanted. Nevertheless, they have already proved to be a useful addition to the wardrobe, perfect for cleaning up aftermaths of leaking roofs and windows.
I have decided to attempt to make different sorts of pants this year and work out what works for me. I had no idea until I started this blog that I was actually the shape I am! Really, I hadn't - my husband often asks me if I have ever looked at myself in a mirror - well, really not much, I'm not very vain - I may have to change that. I may even decide that these pants are not too bright for me to wear as smart casual while emerald green is in. It's actually a nice colour - Do you think I could wear these out and about?
Trinny and Susannah (The Body Shape Bible) describe one shape as being a little like mine, the Cornet:

I've cut the pictures down - strangely, both pictures are at the same sort of angles - quite coincidental, I can assure you.

It's time for dinner here - which I need to make, so that's all for now. I'll let you know what sort of pants I am going to tackle in another blog post.
