Boring black pants

I needed some black pants... really! A few months ago, I got rid of two pair of black dress pants that really didn't fit well and were about seven years old and showing it. In hind sight, I probably should have kept at least one pair until I found some that were better. Anyway...

Here is my second version of Simplicity 2700.

I don't have much to say. I'm really happy with them. The fit is very good. I made a 10 this time (last time I started with a 12) and only needed to take in the sides about 1/4 inch.

I think my little man thought we were taking mug shots. He doesn't need a nap anymore, so expect to see him more in the photo shoots. I used to do them during his naptime.

Here's a look at the waistband.

Hi, my name is Emily (Immelu elsewhere) and I'm a lurker. :) But no more! I love your pants and I think your hair looks great! I need to go short again, but it's been sooooo cold here that I feel like I need the extra warmth!!

How did you do the lining in the pants??? Especially around the zipper?
