I made these trousers in stretch cotton/linen as part of my outfit for April. When I was making them I did a few alterations to improve the fit, but I still wasn’t really happy with the fit. This is after some more alterations to the depth of the crotch and the width of the legs. I’m much happier with them now and it has been a learning experience in fitting trousers!
The pattern is from Burda Style 1/2009 pattern 121
