And I'm so glad I did! Without any fitting alterations they are perfectly wearable. They could be a bit snugger under my bottom and the fabric is not the most pretty or comfortable against the skin but it's not too bad.
Ginger which lends to a perfect finish. I struggled a bit with bulk in this area though and need to address this the next time I sew them. I also have a imperfect invisible zipper. I used a black one (because it was what I had in at home) and it's not completely invisible. The inside of these is very, very ugly. I decided not to try the trousers on until I was almost finished so didn't want to waste time on seams finishes. Not a problem as the fabric doesn't ravel too much.
Now that I done these I can move on and sew them again with the original fabric choice but with a Bombshell and a winter dress on my queue I might wait a few months.
