I constructed these trousers using a lovely camel coloured stretch wool from Britex Fabrics and lots of little couture details! I used Claire Schaeffer’s fly technique (which worked beautifully), a grosgrain ribbon waistband stay, hand overcasting and lots of hand stitching (yes, I consider this fun). For all the construction deets, see the ol’ bloggo! http://www.coutureacademic.com/my-projects/trousers-complete-and-couture-touches/
