Like a broken record, I've been mentioning Kamm pants for a long time (years). I'm sorry. But...well, a bit more affordably priced clothing companies have obviously heard me + are now offering this shape! :)
Lacausa's California-made version is my current favorite. Esby also offers a USA made pair.
But...I made a commitment. (What am I doing even looking at these sites? Please don't ask. I am weak...er, um, just looking for inspiration...right.)
I already have this pattern that I've tried + tested...and it has a simple elastic waist...so there's that too. I could widen the leg a bit a la Lauren Winter. No zippers to insert + a more forgiving fit make this a simple option.
I'm not exactly sure that my clumsy ways or my rear view can handle the creamy glory of my imagined (creamy white) pants. Murphy's law has never been quite so pertinent as when I put on something white. Do I ever miss my mouth + drop a raspberry down my front or overtip a cup of tea up to my mouth any other time? Nope. But put on something white + all bets are off. The great thing about white, however, is that it can handle bleach + can be dyed if necessary. Believe me, I know...so white is quite a tempting choice.
