Belfast, United ...
These are the free Ellen trouser pattern. I found them super-easy to put together but i’m not sure what i think of the shape of them. I’m really not into tapering-in at the ankles..tends to widen me at the hip….not the way i’d want to go if i had a choice!
And when i don’t stand up straight they look a little bunchy, especially from the back…..mmmmm…not sure.
I’m not 100% about the funny pocket details either, but i think they might be growing on me…it’s maybe a pattern that i could customise a bit and improve it…i’ll maybe try again with a wider ankle and welt pockets….
Also they’re supposed to be part of the 3 piece suit with the Franzi waistcoat, but I’ve made the Franzi and i think it is much too short to wear with such low rising trousers. I think i’d prefer a pair of high waisted trousers to wear as part of the suit.
Make something special and practical for your friends and family this holiday season!
