These trousers are made using Simplicity 3688, a re-released pattern originally from 1941. I made them in a lightweight navy wool. What a fabulous pattern! I really enjoyed sewing these up (despite being slightly confused about which pant legs to sew together—does anyone else get graphically challenged with trousers??)
I paired these trousers with a vintage-inspired Fair Isle sweater from my favourite store, Ness
