I created these pants for the BurdaStyle/Project Runway Challenge.  I started with an old Forever 21 wool herringbone coat that I've had forever.  It was too small and falling apart.  I took all the seams apart until I only had flat pieces, and then used Simplicity 3850 as a rough guide to make the pattern pieces.  I made a side zip instead of a front fly and eliminated the pockets.  The side panels came from a pair of khakis that were also in my closet for way too long.  I tried to imitate the herringbone pattern on the wool by cutting panels and sewing them back together.  They're fully lined even though I forgot to take a picture and the lining and the notions are from my stash.  The buttons on the hems came from the original jacket.  I had a few moments of extreme frustration, but it was worth it.  I absolutely love the problem-solving aspect of sewing!



Thanks for looking!  If you're on BurdaStyle and IF I make it into the top 50, please vote for me!
