Well, today we finish the Coastal Cargos sew along. And guess what? I really don’t have any tips on the waistband and hems except what’s in the pattern. So I’m just going to show pictures of Bean in his finished pair and hopefully you’re good with that.
Since I skipped the welt pockets and front pockets on these pants, I decided to play with the pleat on the cargo pockets by reversing it (so I pleated the wrong side). I like how it turned out – I may do this again.
And Bean was pretty happy with his new pants.
