Goodbye, rear-end revealing low-risers. Hello, classy, high-waist trousers.
Though this look may not be for everyone, high-waist trousers can be waist defining, leg lengthening and fun to wear. Our Marilyn trouser sewing pattern is about 38" (98 cm.) long. A variation on this look can be created from our Bella pattern, a high waist trouser with a flared leg.
We paired our sage green, wool-crepe sample with a tight fitting leotard with a plunging back, and black heels, but we look forward to seeing how you style your version!
Gabardine, light-weight wools or silk material.
1 3/4 – 2 1/8 yards (1,50 – 1,90 meters) of SELF, 7" (18 cm.) zipper, 10" (90 × 25 cm.) interfacing, hook & eye closure. Trousers run 38" (98 cm.) long.
This pattern includes seam allowance
