Meg's Magazine Mash Up: Sewing My Everyday Trousers

Main_medium

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!

Get The Look: Culotte Pants

Y-2_medium

There is a new trend in town, folks, the culotte pant! Similar to the gaucho pants that we here at BurdaStyle sported in highschool but with modern and chic tailoring. Styled right, we think these pants are a total hit for Spring. Lucky for us, BurdaStyle just came out with two new culotte patterns so you’re able to sew the look yourself with the material, color and of course tailoring to fit your body!
