Having never owned or made any harem trousers before I thought it would be best to find a pattern rather than draft them myself with no point of reference! So I had a look and picked up Vogue 8909. I wasn’t hopeful that they would be the most flattering of things on my 5’4” frame, especially considering I am proportionately longer in the body than legs and to be honest they probably aren’t. That being said they are possibly the comfiest, hot weather item of clothing I have ever made, and that is worth it to me- especially this summer! I think there is something so appealing and chic about being covered up and yet cool in the heat.
