Almost done -- Sailor Pants!

Today I almost finished my sailor pants, aka fall-front bell-bottomed trousers.

I have two things left to do -- hem them, and adjust the placement of the waistband buttons/buttonholes. It turns out where it looked like they should go makes the pants altogether too tight, even with the rear lacing let out.

I have to move the center waistband buttons and extend the buttonholes. It's a little too tight at the moment, even with the back laces all the way loose
