Since the Dani pants were originally designed as a summer pattern, I was worried that the corduroy would be too heavy, especially around the elastic waistband. As a result I chose a shirting weight corduroy that is only about 4.5oz per yard. I think it’s totally fine and could even be heavier.
I am wearing them here with a simple black Nikko top and heeled booties. I love the simple combo.
I sewed up the zipper front view of the pants. The only change that I made to the pattern was to omit the back pockets to keep it on the dressier side – but that is just personal preference.
Im really happy with the end result of these. They feel like the perfect fall pant in corduroy and will fit really well into my wardrobe.
I am getting close to finishing up my fall Capsule Wardrobe. You can learn more about it here.
