Wellington, New ...
I bought this houndstooth fabric months ago, thinking I’d make some shorts and scoffing when someone suggested trousers. But over the summer holidays the idea grew on me and I ended up making some high waisted ones. Forgetting that the fabric is not stretchy at all I copied my skinny jeans and the pants turned out great…. untill they got so tight that the seams broke and made holes. So I used the leftover fabric and remade parts of them. The cuffs are made to roll up and look super fab with black high heels. Next time I make some high waisted trousers I’ll make sure to remember to leave some room to move and widen the waist band.
