My sister-in-law wears awesome summery linen pants, and I've always wanted some. Well, I got some red tinted linen from a friend and decided to make my own pants. I used the drawstring pants pattern from Burdastyle. (You get another no-make up no shoes day!)
The pattern was really easy and really quick to sew up. I love them! They are breezy and cool and I love the loose fit and high waist.
They keep me cooler than even jean shorts. I do wish they were wider at the hem. Since it was the first time I used this pattern, I did quite know how they would turn out. Next time I'm going to widen the bottom so it's more of a trouser fit.
Now that you've seen the pants, I need some help! What do I wear these pants with? It's not quite pink and not quite red so I don't know what to pair it with. Can I wear a heathered tee with it? Do I wear floral or stripes? Do you think linen counts as a "pattern", so I can't go too wild on top? Please help me!
