Copying a pair of pants (6 - finished)

The pants are finished. I'm satisfied with the result. I think it does look like the original drawing (except for the omitted open slit and the buttons on the front). I do think this would be a great pattern to make in a denim with a contrasting topstitching. Perhaps I'll do that in spring. I like it enough to make it another time, with perhaps a straighter leg. But now, without further ado, a lot of pictures.

And my next project? Certainly something more easy than this.

Amazing, and a just reward for all the hard work you put into reproducing the original. (A song came into my addled brain as I viewed the photographs - Tina Turner's "Simply the best".

Oh, I really love the details of these trousers! You've done a great job of copying the details and reproducing the original. I think you're right -they'd make great second version. For summer they'd look great in white.

Congratulations for amazingly redoing these pants. The fit is great and I LOVE the waist details. I also agree on straighter legs on a new version. Well done Sigrid!

These are UTTERLY fabulous! You took all the details I loved about the Marfy pattern and left out the things I wasn't keen on. Honestly, I'd buy this pattern if you made one!

And you definitely deserve a quick knit top after this! :)
