Pants are weird

Most other costume bits look like what they're going to be pretty early on, but pants?  They's WEIRD. And very origami-esque in that there are always parts that seem nonsensical until the very end and then, voila, pants!

Anyway, I've decided I need more Miss Fisher pieces in my wardrobe so I started in on those Butterick  jodhpurs I posted about.  And I'm making good progress. I think it's a pretty good pattern. It looks relatively accurate, from what little I know of such things, and has a lot of nice tailored details that should make them look extra snappy when finished.

If I fold all the funky bits aside you can see how the front will look (sans buttons.)  I dig those little hidden-in-the-crack pockets.
