Next up- McCalls 5818 wool pants

This is my pattern, which I picked up on a 99 cent sale at Jo-Ann quite a while ago. I wanted to make pants and I had this pattern, so I thought I would give it a shot. 
 I have a pair of wide-leg slacks that I bought in Paris from H&M in 2004 that I really love. Hmm, I guess I really do like them! That is quite a long time ago.
I am using this wool from my estate sale loot. It cost a dollar and is about 1 1/2 yards of about 60 inch wide wool. I know it's wool because it has that sheep stink when I press it with the iron....

  1. "It has that sheep stink when I press it.." This has to be the BEST line I've read all day. I know exactly what smell you're talking about, lol. Can't wait to see your finished pants. :]

  2. Ditto to what Rebecca said, I had to laugh when I read that line about "sheep stink" and yes it does have a very distinct smell! That fabric is so neat and will look great as pants, I want some brown wool to make a skirt and that fabric gives me some ideas!
