My friend gifted me some soft, grey flannel fabric and I decided I wanted to make a chic pair of trousers with it. There’s nothing particularly earth-shattering about this design, but I just thought it looked nicely versatile, and something I could wear to business meetings as well as just team with a teeshirt if I fancied it.
The only real change I made was to add 11+ cm onto the hem so they’re full length rather than the awkward “ankle length” of the original pattern… The finished length feels just about right to me. I also used silk as the pocket linings, waistband lining, and fly underlap, which feels so luxurious!
