Once you choose hope, anything is possible.

Lined olive wool trousers completed.

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

They say that imitation is the best form of flattery.

I'm sure you will finish yours before I do as the doctor has put me on strict orders of "no sewing"! This just doesn't seem right.

Oh Nancy, I am sorry to hear that, and hope you will heal quickly.

I LOVE olive green and have a lot of it in my wardrobe. Great, lined pants. Sew on!

Those look really good and very cosy for the current cold weather.
