Lined olive wool trousers completed. These are the first item in the 'Botanical Gardens' SWAP 2010 collection.
I've used a back invisible zip and they are lined from the bottom of the facing in grey green striped polycotton. I will see how that feels to wear. hopefully a bit more of a comfy version of wearing PJ pants under trousers when its cold LOL.
The lining fabric was originally pale blue. I bought it to make PJs for DH. He said 'Yuk stripes' and I thought 'yuk pale blue' and dyed the fabric with green dye hoping to get a teal or aqua colour. Sadly I actually got an uneven murky greyed green. But that's fine for lining and although these trousers are heavy I hope they will be comfortable to wear
