Military Pants – Victorian Style

I wanted something more aggressive and modern while I was designing this pair of pants. I love Victorian-style and military-style outfits… Does that make any sense? 😛 I used a mix of two different fabric-colors that I thought would stand out and draw your eyes to the design.

I kept the top half of the pants loose and comfortable in this pair as well, then added a few small folds on the front and back, on both left and right sides equally, to create a more puffy look. This time I started the skinny, bottom part of the pants on top of the knee to give it that Victorian style of pants I was talking about.

In the Mills’ world, loads of pockets is, was and will always be an absolute must! I started by creating two functional pockets in front, on the top, followed by two more decorative ones on the back to perfect the look. 🙂 I didn’t want a cover for the side pockets this time, which makes it easier to pull things from your pockets.

For the bottom of the legs I added laces so I can change the widths of the pants the way I like them. This gives the pants a higher level of personal comfort. I also added a few more buttons to detail the design and some gold pins around the hips. Lastly, gold pins on top of the dark navy blue pockets make the two colors of the fabrics complement each other better. I definitely LOVE these pants! 🙂
