This week I tried out a zero waste trouser draft I came across on Pinterest. Actually, it wasn’t a draft – more like a sketch of an idea. (This isn’t the picture I had but it’s very similar.)
The problem was, I didn’t realise that these trousers are intended to be baggy. Really baggy. They need to be baggy because the gusset’s point is a weak spot and will probably tear if subject to stress (like sitting down, for example).
I’ve since found this picture of an ultra-baggy pair; I can see now it’s meant to be a Persian/harem pants style.
I’ll try this pair out as pajama pants and see how they go. Meanwhile, I’ve cut out a looser fitting pair which I’ll finish in the next week or two (hope I can nail it this time!).
