Utility Pants, test

 These are loosely based on army and navy utility pants, with some other inspiration from early 1900's waist overalls.

A few pattern design issues, but nothing that can't be fixed - you can see where it gets real wrinkly around the back, that was not fun to sew.  Suspender buttons are too close as well, just little stuff like that.  Also need to adjust my serger, it's breaking thread where several seams come together which looks pretty bad.

13oz denim from Cone Mills for the test pair.  It's a 2x1 weave which is what is often used for work pants and coats.  Sail cloth lined waist.  Double needle felled outseam, single-needle tailoring.
