Simplicity 2700 – Olive Slacks

This is my first attempt at making Simplicity 2700 Amazing Fit slacks. If I recall, this is my first attempt at slacks!  Overall, I am happy with the result. I made a size 16 curvy and it was too big. So big, in fact, that I’m going to buy the smaller pattern sizes because I compared the finished slacks to the size 14 and the slacks are much smaller. I need to figure this our because I have some beautiful chocolate corduroy and dark denim in the queue!
