So my plan is to make a pair that fits right and is comfortable and cute.
Key design features:
- Lots of pockets
- Large in the waist
- Adjustable straps
- Elastic draw string around the ankles (want to be able to tighten them up around my shoes so they never drag in the mud)
- Lined with flannel
The waterproof fabric I have in mind is waterproof fleece which is $29/yd. It seems really expensive, but since I am so short, I will only need 2 yards to complete the entire project. While I am at the outdoor fabric store, I plan to check out other waterproof fabrics - if I find something that is quiet and waterproof but lighter weight, I may buy that instead and line the pants in fleece.
