Here are the finished capris! I wasn't kidding around with the description! They are a bit on the wild side, but I love this fabric. These are going to Hawaii with me in august! I used Ottobre 02/2009 13 - "Practicality" cropped pants. I like this pattern. I adjusted the length on my pattern paper before cutting. I had to take out 3 inches of length to get them to hit my leg mid-shin. They have front yoke pockets, and are a good pocket length. They have an extra wide faced waistband on them, and belt loops with a zipper fly. The hems at the bottom are turned up at 2" for a nice wide hem look. I made a size 46. This pattern was sized 46 - 52. The fabric is a 100% cotton, more of a shirting weight, but I wanted to have a light pair of breathable capris. I plan on these being roomy, but right now they are more of a snug fit. I am still on my weight loss journey, though and hope soon they will be looser! (I have lost 16 pounds! Yay!.....my intermediate goal is 20 by hawaii....I have 3 weeks to lose 4 pounds). I have an orange sophia knit that is sitting in my stash that is definitely going to be a shirt for these pants. If you ever get a chance to pick up some sophia knits - do it. They are nice and stable with great recovery, a little bit thicker to smooth the insides. My lavendar tank top was a sophia knit.
It is hard to see the buttons (you can click on the picture to get a bigger view), but these are from button drawer (online company). They are a cute molded design in the island motif. Have you ever shopped buttons from button drawer? They have sooo much you will get drawn into their website for hours! Fun though! Whatever you may be looking for, they will have....at a decent cost and fast service!
