Neutral Territory


Sorry, this isn't such a great photo. I just had a co-worker snap it. This is first pair of khakis I have ever owned. I wanted them wide legged, high waisted and made from fabric with some stretch in it. These are Butterick 5221. They pretty much fit out of the envelope-though I should have done a short waist adjustment. I interfaced the fly area and used twill tape around the pockets. I should have interfaced the pants pocket area and made the pocket bag a bit bigger. But all in all, I am pretty satisfied with them. And I can wear them with all of my tops.

Angela! Your wonderful present of Simplicity 2591 just arrived in my mailbox. I'm going to cut into my precious shwe shwe from South Africa to make up a version I've been planning in my head for a while.
Thank you again!
