Linen Ellen

Added Aug 23, 2008

by fashion1

Dresden, Germany






This is my try on the Ellen pants pattern. Also I want to try the quality of this fabric. it´s one of the fabrics I bought in berlin on the turkish market.

Some alteriations were necessary on this pattern. again I lower the waistband and transfer the pockets. I also sewed the legs closer cause the pants had a very loose sit on my body.

After all I´m statisfied how the pants came out, but not sure if I will sew it again. I like the different look of the pockets.

Now I´m excitedly on the qualitiy of the linen. It cost only 2€ per meter… I will see.

    Thank you all for you nice comments :)!

    I lower the waistband about 4 cm, not much but a very different look! As I made the legs closer I could use the original waistband otherwise I had to have enlarge it this time.

    Very chic! And super cool fabric! Looks very neatly done (as always)! I also bought a 2euro-fabric on the turkish market and want to make pants out of it. We will see ;)
