More cargo pant inspiration

In the last post I was ogling the Maschino Cheap and Chic cargo pants but I wanted to see if I could find a photo of the whole pant.  Unfortunately I really had trouble.  The only style I could find were these lace back cargos from the Fall 2010 collection.  Still cute though, no?  And I love the styling with the sweater, so comfy!!!  Here’s the back view of the pant:

You can see the lace up detail somewhat here.  I like the back pockets too although I might try to do a patch pocket instead of flaps.  Those drastilly flaps always get caught on something and rip!  Maybe it’s due to my large derriere sticking out all the time?  And one other thing about those flaps, they can never lie flat once they’ve been washed!  But still.  Love these pants and I know I can incorporate some details here in my own.

I also found these two from JAG:

The first one reminds me of the McCalls pattern and the second one is more of the ‘skinny’ style.  Unfortunately these two styles can only be bought up to size 16 so I can’t even buy them!  Darn those 30 pounds!!!!

Well, I’m reallly getting some great ideas and I can’t wait to get started.
