The pants have a flat waistband at the front and elastic at the back. And pocket. They have three pleats either side of the CF, whereas my old pair had two pleats.
The pants made up very easily and didn't need much alteration. This is the front view:
(I'm not sure why I'm looking skyward - I think it is something to do with hating taking self timed photos - but you can at least see the pants!)
The side view actually is a nice profile - the pants hand down and hide the tummy nicely!:
And will I? I don't think so. Not in a nice linen. I think I should leave baggy pants back in my sewing past. If I want baggy pants ever again, I would re-use this pattern.
I do love these though, in their own right - they look nice and I will love wearing them as very very relaxed lounging pants:
I do hope you are sewing with success as well :)
