Description

I’ve always had trouble finding pants that fit, so I was thrilled when Sewaholic released her Thurlow Trouser pattern designed for pear shapes. I made a straight size 6, which basically fit right out of the envelope.

I omitted some of the design details, like the back welt pockets and belt loops. I straightened the leg flare a bit, too. It’s a great pattern, though I’ll warn you the instructions are kinda confusing. Stick with it!

See more on my blog. Thanks!

Material Notes

Rayon blend suiting in charcoal gray (found on eBay), 9-inch polyester zipper I snipped down to 4 inches, pants hook and eye, button.

Intermediate

    Stunning!! I should really work on getting myself a perfect pants pattern… one of the reasons I almost never sew myself trousers =) Ps – I’m following your blog and it was my Tuesday morning blog read today! Loved it and it made me think of my own troubles with getting trousers that fit perfectly :) Thanks for the inspiration and hope you will wear your perfect pair often!
