And they turned out interesting and nice, unexpectedly. That was surprising even to me. I have taken some pictures of the pants, so I'm going to write some for them today and would leave the other result for the next blog post.
I used this gray cotton fabric covered with tiny cut off raw eyelets. I hope you can get it from the close-up photo. This is a pretty fabric (by the way those raw edges of the eyelets don't fray almost at all), and I think it would make pretty blouses. I made a pair of semi-wide pants in this fabric with an even thinner gray lining fabric attached as a single layer instead. I could have assembled the outer shell(pants) and the lining in the traditional way, but I didn't, because I wished that by handling two thin fabrics as a single layer these light pants would hold their shape better than having two separate layers. And it worked as expected. Though they are surely not suitable for *proper* occasions, they're great for my business and daily casual activities in this heatwave of Japanese summer. They're long, light and breezy, and cool, in my eyes. I'm happy with them so much! I may like to have another pair in some large plaid, don't you think they would be cool too?
I used Joker semi-baggy pants pattern from Tamanegi-kobo, I'm so loving this pattern, because it elongates and straightens my legs very much. yay.

|don't try to ask me if the blouse is handmade, it's ten-year-old and store-bought...|
