Beach pants

I love both the fabric and the pattern that I used for this project, and it gave me just the look I was going for!  The fabric is from Fiddlehead Artisan SupplyRobert Kaufman Railroad Denim in Indigo (2.5 yards).  The pattern is Blank Slate’s Oceanside Pants (size medium).

The patterns were amazingly easy to sew, and required few modifications.  I really like the design of the pockets, and they’re very simple since they’re patch pockets.  The pants are elastic waistband, but with the clever addition of drawstrings sewn to the elastic, for a little more of a finished look.

I did add about 1.5″ to the top of the waistband because I didn’t want the pants to ride so low on my hips, although once they were sewn up, I think they would have been fine even as called for in the pattern.  I ended up taking about 2″ out of each leg from the knee down to the ankle, just because they were so wide-legged — I mean, I know that’s the look, but I could have fit a second person in there with me!  And, I cuffed the pants and tacked down the cuffs.  Otherwise, I didn’t make any pattern mods.
