I love it! Vintage style trousers

Another go at the vintage style trousers from the June 2011 issue of Burdastyle. This time they have been shortened for petite & tapered quite a bit from the knee to the hem. Made in a polyester blend mini houndstooth I got at the Sewing Show in Birmingham in March with raspberry lining in the pockets & binding for the hems & waistband edges. These fit really well, and are a great hit with both daughters now!

    They’re very flattering. I love waist high pants. You’ve done a good job with the tapering, they fit really well
