High Waisted Slacks

Added Nov 10, 2010

Cakovec, Croatia






High waisted retro trousers. In this case made of wool fabric for winter.

TIP: Take a classic pattern for a wider pants.
In place of front darts add 2 cm and make pleats. Raise your waist by 10 cm.

I hope you understand what I wanted to say.

    I adore these! I am planning a similar pair for summer, made of lightweight material. You did a wonderful job creating these classic trousers!

    Meni je sve jasno! Prelepe pantalone! Dopada mi se mornarski izgled, a pomalo podseca na pantalone koje sam prosle nedelje pravila za sajt. Svaka cast! Pozdrav iz BGa!

      Da, slicne su. Meni se bas svidja taj stil. Na prvim takvim hlacama (onima na mojoj slici s profila) stavila sam kopcanje s gumbima isto kao i ti, ali nekako mi je bilo labavo, a ja vise volim nositi stegnuto u struku.
      P.S. Svaka cast tebi..jos nisam uspjela pregledati cijelu tvoju kolekciju ;)

    They are gorgeous with that lovely 20s vibe that I’ve been looking for recently! I love the soft wide leg. May I ask what type of wool did you use here? Seriously GORGEOUS! I want a pair for myself.

      Thank you. Yes they are :)
      I used common pattern for the trousers.

    I love this style – I call it “Mary Poppins-Style” or “Fräulein Rottenmeier-Style” Where can we find a pattern for the pants?

      You have to work it by yourself.. it is not too complicated. I added a tip to the description.

      Unfortunately there is no such pattern in Burda, but it is not complicated to do such trousers with any other trousers pattern.
