Cotton twill trousers, very heavy twill, so it wrinkles too easily :(
I have wanted shortened trousers for a long long while. I so love the boy-ish but classic look they give. I have included my inspiration page.
Navy is pretty much my staple wardrobe colour. I am very happy with some of the details, such as the well-finished waistband and the pockets. I took great care making these, with the help of a book called “Making trousers – how to achieve great results”. I used a remnant of soft baby blue cotton as lining for the in-seams pockets and the waistband, and both fabrics have a little bit of elastane. This makes the trousers very comfortable to wear.
