The last steps on my pants took more time than I thought. As you might know I’m pretty obsessed by matching stripes, the waistband included. Cutting, basting and sewing together took a lot of time. The result I like very much in the details, the fit in the back could be better again. This fluid, beautiful quality wool has a different effect on drape than the black pants I made recently.
Without further ado, a lot of pictures. Matching stripes on the inside was not intended, and hand sewing (the lining to the fly) is not my strongest point.
A small zigzag stitch on the pocket, the pocket is a bit wide and this prevents gaping.
The waistband, cut on the fold like in my last pants.

Wearing i, at this moment the hem was pinned to check the length and the button not yet attached.
Next project? No idea yet.
