I’m know I’m not the first to make the Ruby shorts pattern into full trousers, and if anyone is tempted Ito try, ’d recommend it. It was easy to do, I just traced the shorts pieces and drafted on longer legs. The shape of the shorts pattern kind of makes wide legged trousers the only option without a fair bit of re-drafting, but that was the look I was after as I had a sailor vibe in mind.
I made them as I didn’t have enough trousers options to see me through my Me-Made-March challenge in which I am only wearing clothing I have made myself (excluding bras, socks and tights). These trousers have more or less become my jeans replacement.
