Great Yarmouth, ...






I quite liked the fit of some fake leather pants I made a while ago and decided to use the pattern again. This time round I lenghtened the pattern by 8cm but unfortunately that still wasn’t enough :-((
Although the pants fit nicely, I am sooooo unhappy about the length !! Am considering to shorten them into a 3/4 length.
But the colour goes perfectly with my new Tshirt :-))

Material Notes

some bi-stretch trousers material, interfacing, zip




Spring, Fall
Garment Type
Business, Classic

    The trousers are great! I don’t see why you want to shorten them! BTW I love your new t-shirt, it’s very unusual! :-))

      Thank you Douli !
      I love the tshirt too, and like I said, it goes well with the pants, but the pants (even though I have to admit, don’t look quite that bad on the picture) look as though I washed them too hot.
      But, I have had some suggestions on how to lengthen them a couple of centimeters, which I will try today and hopefully end up with the result I want !

      thank you Mary !
      trousers are a good fit, except for the length :(((
      Although it doesn’t actually look that bad on the picture, but believe me, in reality they are too short, even with flat shoes, they look like I shrunk them in the washing machine !
