Mod Houndstooth Trousers

Added Dec 9, 2013

I made these high waisted trousers for daughter No2 from BurdaStyle Magazine, March 2011. I made a pair in October for Daughter No1 & they were much coveted, so what was I to do? The style is #119 and needed only a little alteration. The welt pockets would be more than a little tricky for a novice sewist, but when complete they do look good! Daughter No2 loves clothes that stand out from the crowd, & these trousers definitely fit that bill! Photos & info can be found on The Monthly Stitch

    High waisted trousers always look nice and emphasize any waist greatly. Besides, such pattern is perfect when you want to wear a blouse inside the trousers.
