Elastic waist wide leg corduroy pants... je ne sais quoi cool or dorky '80s mistake?
I'll be honest: I don't care either way, because these are so comfortable!
I've had a piece of corduroy in my stash for a while now, some gorgeous medium-weight navy stretch Ralph Lauren goodness from The Smuggler's Daughter. Perfect fall/winter fabric...
For this fabric, I considered several pants patterns in my stash, many of which were traditional zip fly and button pants.
But I ultimately landed on making pants with an elastic waistband. Let's be honest, and I don't think I'm alone here: I just cannot tolerate non-elastic waists these days...
I've really enjoyed wearing my Elizabeth Suzann Florence pants over the past few months, so I threw caution to the wind and decided to make another pair with my corduroy.
Although I thought perhaps my summer Florence pants were a smidge tight in the stomach, I decided that I would make the same size because of the stretch factor in my corduroy.
Yes, I probably still need a full belly adjustment on these, but I can't be bothered.
