Garment sewing: Owyn pants

Coral has obviously been the color of my summer, but the close runner up would definitely be Kelly green. I'm generally not a huge green fan, but this shade just calls out to me, and I find myself migrating toward it a lot lately. It popped up in my second Esme tank, and then I couldn't resist making a pair of green pants after seeing this cute pair by Melly Sews.
The fabric is Robert Kaufman's Essex Linen in Kelly, and it sewed up beautifully. The pattern is the Owyn pants from Lotta Jansdotter's fabulous book, Everyday Style. 
These pants are super comfy (I definitely want to make a pajama version) and have seen lots of wear on the days when it's not scorching hot (in short supply this summer). The pattern's another winner from Lotta's book (also the source of the Esme top pattern), and I'm still itching to try the Kiomi top as well. The book's also just great eye candy, and I highly recommend it if you have any interest in garment sewing.
