SWAP pants, maybe

My original plans for today’s project was a 1960s style cigarette pant.  I used Butterick 5895 as the base.  I love how Gertie’s capris fit, but they are way too short for winter.  From the knee down, I used view B from Burda 6981.  I love the look of cuffs, but I didn’t follow the folding directions on my muslin.  My muslin came out hitting right at the ankle bone, perfect for winter.  The finished trouser is a few inches shorter.  They will be fine in Spring but for now, back to the drawing board for winter pants.
