Cocoa cord NL6660 with flapped pockets

Pattern: New Look 6660 (my second pair – here’s the first)

Fabric: Darkest cocoa brown fine cord from Simply Fabrics

Pattern & fit notes: Not a lot different from my first pair! Which I’ve been wearing a lot despite the rather garish floral print, so decided a more neutral pair was needed. Just two main differences:

I added self-drafted button-down flaps onto the pockets, inspired by this sort of thing. (Front pockets always look so unevenly placed when you throw fly topstitching into the mix, huh?). Buttons are my forever-favourite copper ones from Textile Garden.

I did not mess up the inside fly bit and sewed it properly this time.
