Clover Pants the Trilogy - Part II

Back when the sun was shining I took part in the OWOP challenge using the Clover Pants by Colette as my pattern. The first version was a brightly coloured pair made of a stretch cotton sateen (see them here)
For the second pair I wanted something really comfy and casual ideal for lounging about at the weekend or going to yoga in.
So here is version 2, as you can see I made a few changes to the pattern (does this count as cheating??)
Here are the changes I made:
I used the Elena Ponte Roma jersey rather than the recommended fabric with more body and just a little stretch.
I replaced the waistband and zip fastening with a simple jersey waistband made from plain black ponte roma jersey.
I made them a size up and wore them low slung on my hips(I actually did this on the first pair by accident but decided for this fabric it was a better style than the original fit)


My best trick!
No I can't skate really  it is just a prop!

Makes a handy seat as well

I loved wearing them as they were super comfy. What do you think do they work? Would you be tempted into a pair of jersey Clovers?

Happy sewing xxx
