Description

It took me months and months, and about 5 different waistbands but I finally made linen trousers. It was a battle all the way but I’m really happy with how they turned out and they’re so comfortable!

I reverse-engineered the pattern from a pair of trousers I own.

Material Notes

Linen. Possibly linen cotton blend.

      Thank you! I did not make the top but it’s so simple, I’ve been thinking about making a pattern from it since I bought it.

      I’ll let you know if I do.

    Deconstructing things is a hobby of mine as well! Your trousers came out really good and elegant!

    I also struggle with waistbands, but it looks like you got yours perfect in the end :-) Elegant trousers!
