Sew day Monday

First day of the sewing week: navy linen pants.
Simplicity 2372 has a very simple pants pattern - an elasticised waist is fine with me for weekend wear - I'll never tuck a shirt in anyway. 
Fabric - navy linen from deep dark stash
Mods - I omitted the pockets
Mods if I make it again (which I will) - it's a bit long in the front so next time I will shorten the front crotch line by about 2-3cm.
Rating - very wearable and a good alternative to jeans.

And look at that!  The sun came out in time for me to photograph Monday's sewing efffort.  I think that means that the rest of the day will be in the garden.
