Last time I made these pants in navy ripstop for my previous size. Now I used small and the pants need to be lengthened (6cm). So I added quilt binding from my stash to get the hem right and used the edging foot to get the stitching line in the right place. I do like the binding finish. Is that a good thing?
I've used 32mm/1 1/4 " wide elastic in the waistband and coverstitched the waist band casing. Again, I need to add more to the casing (6cm) so that easily folds over. Printed pants like these are strictly weekend wear.
After working with Angie Zimmerman, I adjusted this pattern and added 1.5cm to the total width of the pants pattern. The front and back leg are in the one pattern. The back crotch curve is 2cm deeper and the front crotch curve is also 1cm deeper.

Here are the first two days of my OPOW attempt in Singapore with the grey shorts.

Today I was feeling more normal so I put on the green printed pants and chilled out on the stairs before putting some dinner together. Bootcamp class this morning was a killer so DH marinated chicken in tandoori so I only needed to get some vegies organised. No dahl this time.More later.
