Simplicity 2477 white pants

I wonder why I haven't made white pants in so long. Maybe because the commodore look hasn't been my look. Maybe because summer lasts 20 minutes around here. I don't know.


But I had some white cotton sateen and am working on my everyday pants so I decided why not. Of course there is some seam show through and of course if I were making more serious pants I would underline or line them, but these are plain old pants that will be hitting the laundry basket every time I wear them. I am pretty pleased with how they feel and think I will make one more pair of these before moving on. These will do fine for my not work days.

I really like your pants and white is a great color for summer. Who cares if its only 50 out (F), its summer. I have a pair planned for July.
The number of hours of daylight is going down only 18 hours and 16 mins. I have to make the most out of all those hours.
