Meg's Magazine Mash Up: Sewing My Everyday Trousers


I was away last week so I didn’t start sewing my trousers until the weekend (that is when I like to sew anyway). In this post I show the assembly of the pants and front hip pockets. I bought really nice medium-weight black stretch cotton and stretch silver lamé to panel together. I have one side seam complete so I was able to slip on the pant and I think I have to make a few crotch adjustments. Check out my first sewing progress report for our everyday trousers pattern, and sew along with me!

I took last week off, so I put off my sewing until this week once all my traveling and holidays dinners were over with.
