My husband and I went on a trip the end of July and I made some quick pajama pants that mimic trousers to wear on the plane.
Wanted them comfortable but not to look like pajamas.
inspired by these Plano Print Pants from Anthropologie.
these are kind of a trial pair, they work but I'd like to try them again.
FABRIC: a linen blend in blue that kind of looks like chambray. I liked the crosshatch of the linen and this blend doesn't wrinkle...but it ended up being stiffer than I hoped. Thus they don't drape that well like the inspiration pants--my next attempt will be in ikat printed rayon challis.
DETAILS: they're actually elastic waist like the inspiration pair. I think the next ones I'll do a zip fly to look more like pants. I added small belt loops and would have liked to include welted back pockets but ran out of time. There are darts into the waist to help shape the butt of the pants, especially considering they are elastic waisted. Slanted front pockets.
I've been wearing them with sandals for summer, but thought they'd also work with oxfords or ballerina flats in fall.
The hem works for flats or a little heel.
me and crazy ellie.
her terrible-two-stage is killing me!
