Notes Fabric: Using remnants of a sand navy black mini dogtooth fabric: light-medium weight cotton, one side brushed. I had enough fabric for longer pants, but wanted to make them tapered. But as I narrowed it down the pants became too tight when sitting down because this fabric has zero stretch and it is quite fragile I think, so I preferred to cut it as a short avoiding too much stress on the fabric. I think that as normal pants it would have been fine but I don’t like to wear such wide legs pants so if I cannot have it tapered then I just prefer to cut it.
I used black piping 2 mm wide black piping.
I have to use another fabric for the pockets and interior of the waistband, also I have to use for the pockets visible part a piece that is cut perpendicular in the print but from far it is not noticeable because the print is so tiny.
As I have to cut it overall 2 cms narrower in the back hips, because I had not enough fabric. But it is a little tight but it still fits. I can sit down even if it is not the short I would put to go to the playground with my young children.

    What problems we women often have to do with pants. Your result looks neat but understand that you wanted it to be better in terms of feeling. Now I am making my 1st pants and I wonder if it will work.
    Well done!
