 Grin

I kind of feel the tracing of ottobre patterns and the PITA that is means you have to make lotsa pairs right?> Embarrassed



Yes ,this time mustardy twill with accent pockets from an Ikea scrap,literally the bit did 4 pockets and that was all Wink


Then some lovely linen I have had in my cupboard for years now,I bought lots in three colours,here is the blue colourway,a green pair are cut and good to sew...maybe i will do orange too Wink

I felt inspired last night to make some drawstring waist trousers....OK, really, Ok really ,I ran out of elastic Cheesy Cheesy Wink

I did the drawstring at the ankles too,I will get some action pics tomorrow!

For now the hanging in a shrub pics  Wink



Thanks for looking!!!!

stripey linen!  Love!  I can not find such a thing around here - you have much better fabric in the uk (or at least better than I have in this town  Embarrassed

How does the drawstring hold up on the wee guy?  I've been hesitating doing such a thing for my monkey, but I'd rather do so than use elastic. 

I love the yellow twill... I need to go bottoms for the whole family now  Wink

The striped linen was luck,usually i buy all my fabric from the states ::)I did buy 6 yards of every colour Embarrassed

I akm loving the drawstring actually,but my little boy is not potty training,he is still a clothy nappy bum,so i am in control of the dressing,KWIM?

I do love the total adjusability thing though,so thinking ahead i though I might do an elastic/drwastring hybrid,so the drawstring divided into three with elastic in the middle and the linen at each end,so you can tie then pull down...what do you think vegbee,?
