I have to admit, I love a slouchy loose fitting trouser just as much as a pencil skirt or an awesome dress. These trousers made with an Italian wool crepe from Mood Fabrics and lined with a silk blend, feel absolutely amazing and are very easy to wear.
I used my beloved go to trouser pattern Burda B7250 also seen here. With the following alterations:
Added 3 1/2 inches to the length
Added a 1/2" seamed panel down the outside leg
Removed the zipper from the pattern
Added a drawstring elastic to the waist but removed the drawstring (this is a very flexible elastic that works much nicer in tailored items than the normal elastic)
Added 2 waist band belt loops
Added ribbed tight fitting ankle cuffs found here
Added back single welt pockets
The sweater is a reconstruction made from a gorgeous cashmere sweater that once belonged to my husband that thanks to our cat who made a few holes in it, had to retire it to the trash pile or so he thought. I removed the sleeves, the neck band, waist band and re-cut it using downloaded Burdastyle pattern-Crewneck Sweater 08/2013 #129 with the following alterations:
Added a 1/2" extended neck band
Removed 2" from the sleeve length
Added a 4"tapered cuff made with the excess sweater fabric
Added an exposed zipper
