Description

I carried on with my March mini-wardrobe plans and made the seamed trousers from KnipMode Oct 2010 (#8). I also thought I was due a “quick knit top” so I pulled out Jalie 2806 (a gift from LynnRowe on PR!) so I could try out those fantastic tulip sleeves, with the thought of maybe using them on the spring/summer version of my Burda September cover dress…

KnipMode call for ankle zips on these, but just looking at the width of the pattern I could tell these weren’t going to be necessary in the slightest. In fact, these are a bit baggier overall than would be suggested by the (supposed) need for stretch fabrics and the tech drawing. And I hate to admit it, but I’m not really in love with these trousers, so I’m feeling that maybe it was right they they weren’t included in my March mini wardrobe after all (since I adore everything in that!).
