Who doesn’t want a comfy pair of pants for the workplace? With Mood’s latest, The Linda Pants, you’ll find a tapered, breathable pair of trousers ideal for the transition from working from home to working at an office. I designed this pattern to specifically cater to the adaptive needs of those with endometriosis. The elasticized waist makes for a comfortable wear, and a much easier sew. Plus, it has a little extra room in the front to accommodate for endo belly. You can easily whip up this pattern on a good day, and rock them on a flare day! While this pattern is adaptive, anyone can rock these pants for an ultra-cozy, ultra-chic alternative to traditional trousers!
