Finished pants

So even though the pants fit me almost perfectly ( tiny bit too big in the waist) I can't get them to look right on the dressform. I'll have to keep working on her. So instead you get a down on the floor shot. This is my very first pair of pants, except for Pj's they don't count. I picked a super easy pattern, Simplicity 4500. It's one of thoes Threads wardrobe patterns. I used a linen fabric that has something else in it. ( not sure what) It doesn't wrinkle as badly as 100% linen would. It washed well. Here ia a picture of the cuffs.

I probably won't make them again. I'm not loving how wide the legs are. They feel like Pajama pants when you wear them. If I did make them again I would narrow the leg and make the waist band shorter.
This is my last Bottom for SWAP.
