skinny flower trousers

Added Jan 11, 2013

Melbourne, Austr...






These trousers were meant to be for summer and was going to make them a bit looser but I didn’t quite like how they looked. The first time I finished them they seemed to fit OK but when I wore them, the fabric gave quite a bit (it was meant to be stretch but it only seemed to stretch out and not back in again) and I had to keep pulling them up. I had to take off the waistband and take them in (probably a good thing because I didn’t quite have enough fabric for the waist band and had to patch in another bit and really messed up the button hole) but was too lazy to re-do the pocket size so the pocket opening only just fits my hand in. This detracts a little from the overall look but isn’t too bad.

Material Notes

cotton elastane

    These are very fashion-forward, IMHO! LOVE the fabric and I think you did a good job with the adjustments needed to get the fit you wanted.

    Fab fabric choice. It sounds like these were a bit of a struggle but the finished look is pretty cool!
