These are Butterick 5250. I've never worn wide leg pants before and I'm still not sure about these pants, but I don't HATE them like I was so sure I would. They look shapeless on a hanger, but they are suprisingly flattering.
The picture isn't great, with the flash on the mirror and, as always, I got too excited about finishing a garment to actually bother to press them properly. I feel they make me look fat, but that could also be because I am not used to wearing light colours on my bottom half.
The more I sew Big 4 patterns, the more I realise how irrelevant their size charts are. According to my measurements I should make a size 14. According to the finished widths, I should make a 10. Which is what I did. I took it in by miles and probably could have cut the size 8 with no problems. I should have used a heavier fabric. This is a polycotton drill, but it has a sheen to it so I don't know if you'd still call it drill. It came from my stash; a whole roll that I acquired from the last film I worked on.
These pants are my last SWAP garment. Now all I have to do is put the lining in the jacket and sew on the buttons and I'm done. Next weekend I'll do all the pressing and styling and if I can get DH's attention, I'll get some photos.
