I have a pair of olive green linen cargo pants from Zara that are worn and faded beyond belief and need to be replaced. And a psuedo-fisherman style pant from H&M that I bought back in spring 2002, it goes without saying this pair has seen better days.
So, I hit the internet in search of a pattern or two to use for my next generation of summertime pants.
"Thai fisherman pants", popular among yoga enthusiasts
I found a free pattern online for Thai fisherman pants, and I've also seen them promoted as yoga pants and maternity pants. I've never tried any like this and I'm wondering how well they stay up. I might try making a pair to at least wear around the house. Fisherpants.com has nice information about this style of pant if you're interested.
Also, I've been stalking the Danish pattern company, Onion, because of their great selection of pants. Right now I am most drawn to 4021 (I love the darts at the knees) and 4022 (sorry I am unable to link directly to these). I've never purchased from them before. Hmm, well, today is my payday...
