Good news, readers: I have finished my linen pants! (Those are NOT them up top, but rather the J. Crew inspiration.)
And I have even better news: the pants are not see-though. Can you tell I'm wearing gray boxers with black trim? Well I am. As far as nude underwear, as a few people suggested yesterday, I have never seen anything like that for men, aside from dance belts, and I'm not squeezing myself into one of those.
I am extremely pleased with the way the pants turned out; the linen really behaved. I even copied the cute button loops from my tight white H&M pants.
The inside seam leg is flat-felled, the outside leg seam is just stitched with the seam allowances serged (separately).
I still have to hem these and I think tomorrow we'll do our photo shoot. I'll wear the white pants and the butter shirt, and maybe a few other recently completed items that look good with this ensemble (groovy sheet blazer? Marc Jacobs taffeta jacket?). As far as sunglasses, it's anybody's guess.

Friends, I do hope your sewing projects are coming along well. I want to see some linen action!
Happy Friday, everybody!
