Rock Chick Clovers

Added Jan 9, 2012

by suzysewing







This is my second pair of Colette Patterns Clover trousers and this time I went with a stretch animal print. I love how they turned out despite the fact that the material is not so good and ended up stretching too much on the zipper side.

The construction was a breeze and the only different thing from last time was side seams, which were taking in by 1 inch on each side.

Material Notes

Unspecified faux fur/ velboa type with stretch.




Garment Type

      Thank you!! You should try it. Aside from potential fitting issues, they are so incredibly simple to sew.

      Yes, trousers fitting can be quite a nightmare. I tried a few other patterns before but never managed a great fit. I was quite lucky with the Clovers as they do fit quite well, without massive changes.

      That’s what I’m hoping—I’ve heard it both ways from people. This will be my first pair of pants, so I’m a bit nervous!
