The model photo. This woman has no butt. None.
Here's my version. I only put one patch pocket on the front but added two slightly larger ones to the back. I figured this woman did have a butt and there was a lot of blank real estate back there with no pockets.
I used my new embroidery machine to add tone on tone decorative embroidery to the pockets. I really wanted them to be mirror image but my embroidery machine said they were too big to edit on the machine. I'll have to get some embroidery software so I can do that on the computer. I assume you can do that right? Change it on the computer, put the new file on the thumbdrive, and stick it in your machine? The embroidery doesn't show up this much, it's the flash that makes it stand out.
Front detail shot. I topstitched with Coats and Clark Heavy Duty thread in a warm copper tone. I added a jeans-style button and topstitched the waistband. I did modify these slightly so they were below the waist. The original pattern stops at the waist but I like my pants an inch or so lower. This is a good height for me.
Here's the back view. Sorry for the oddly angles shot. I was doing this myself. You can see the pockets are about 1/8" off. I waited until I had already put the pants together before placing the pockets. I wanted to make sure they were in the right spot. Oh, and the embroidery is from UrbanThreads.com. It's called Delicate.
I've got some sort of front thigh thing going on here. You can see how it looks snug in this picture. Must run more and lift weights less.
Here's a more accurate shot of the fabric. It's from Gorgeous Fabrics and it has an almost teal cast to it. It's a lightweight material and has no stretch.
I took this shot so you could see how wide these are at the hem. I added a deep hem to the bottom.
Here they are in their bell bottom glory. In this picture you can barely see the embroidery. That's the look I was going for.
I played with my other "new" machine too. I set the Necchi up as a buttonholer and topstitching machine. Doesn't it make pretty keyhole buttons??!?!?
