Chanel......ish pants

I normally do not sew pants as I hardly wear them,

but the Chanel S/S 2013 collection that was shown last October changed my mind when I saw these come down the runway.

It was the sandals that caught my eye but the pants were interesting enough for me to try & make.

I used a poly cotton nylon fabric that resembled the Chanel perforated pants.  I first used this McCalls' 6404 legging pattern but it was too form fitting even though I cut a size bigger.

My only other pant pattern is this one that I made pants for my middle daughter a couple of years ago.
I omitted the drawstring & it worked much better for me!

Looking at this photo, I do need to work on my hems & next time will hand sew.  Maybe even try a real pant pattern with a zipper :)

Sew you later!
