I took these pictures today in 22 degree weather. It was today or
never much later in the year. This is the second pair of cargos made from this pattern and just like the first pair, I love em'.
The only discovery that I've made with this project is that my fabric choice is so
lightweight that it makes these pants not so warm in cold weather AND they don't layer well.
The fabric is a 100% Cotton "Sew Classics Bottomweight Wrinklease" from Jo Ann Fabrics. I purchased three cuts: charcoal, khaki and green. I recently completed a top/jacket in the green and am strongly considering inserting a lining to give it more weight.
To this pattern, I added 1" to the back to compensate for the size of my behind
and 1/2" to the length of the crotch. Overall I am satisfied with the fit but feel there is still room for improvement. This pattern has great details and was rather simple to construct.
I highly recommend this "great first pant, get your feet wet - kinda" pattern. While I probably will not make this pattern again I am looking forward to making a different style of cargos using a more weighty fabric.
Until next time......Peace and Blessings!!!
