I’ll admit, I finished sewing these pants weeks ago. I took pictures of them meaning to make a blog post about them, but didn’t get around to it right away. So, even though these are old news, they’re too cute not to share.
These are the “pluto pants” from the winter 2008 issue of Ottobre magazine. I used olive ripstop fabric from Jo-Ann’s and did contrasting topstitching in light blue thread.
This pattern went together so well, I’ll definitely make it again. All the little details – knee pleats, panel seams, cargo pockets – make these pants special. E-boy much prefers pull-on pants, and I love the sporty look these have. They are plenty baggy to wear over long johns if the weather is chilly, too.
