Jungle pants - Butterick 6837

I was amazed that I found yet another jungle remnant in the stash - a snake skin print.
I've used Butterick 6837 because these pants are light, flowy and great for humid, mozzie infested jungle conditions.
 Remember- it's still Jungle January. Jungle on.
The waistband has a 32mm elastic and the seams are simply overlocked. I've made the small size and adjusted the back crotch curve for my 'behind.' These pants have been excellent for air travel too.
MyHung fabrics had an interesting eyelet fabric and I decided to make this fabric into these pants too. The fabric is 90cm wide with a lovely edging on both sides of the fabric.
This time I trimmed back the inside seam to slim back the leg width without looking too out of proportion.
I've also lined them from the waist to the knees because the eyelets on this fabric are huge - nothing to see here:)
Now to make a peplum top in a solid colour (no print) to wear with both of these pants.
I'm trying to edit back the jungle prints to avoid looking like Adriana from The Sopranos. Adriana was way taller and she had nails as long as any lioness.

Dilemma: What does a girl do when the jungle prints run out?

Loving your pants. Patterned pants are so on trend now. I am not game enough to wear them. Something about the size of a patterned stomach and rump.

They look absolutely great on you. Love the belt too. I am having pant envy.

And the simple answer to your question - buy more!!!! I am hoping Anne continues the Jungle after January.

Really enjoying your parade. You must definitely be the headlining model on the runway.

Great pants. I wish I could bring myself to wear loose flowy pants, but for some reason they just feel very uncomfortable to me. What a great idea to line them, too. As for your dilemma, I say just buy more!

wow, how much jungle print did you have stashed?

I've got my fingers in my ears (or is it over my eyes) at the thought of MyHung. I love them so it's just as well it's a train trip to any of them. Even though a short train trip it's enough to keep me on my fabric diet.

I love your fancy pants. They are very much the in thing right now. The prints are great. By the way, your Yalta tops turned out great.
