London, United K...
The main reason I made these is that they’re a pattern for knits, which you don’t see very often, and they’ve got nice slim legs and a fly front. Usually knit trousers mean elasticated waistbands a’la leggings, but I have fond memories of a few RTW pairs like this I had in high school and university that I wore positively threadbare! I hate turn ups, though, so I just cut these at the final indicated length and then just didn’t fold them up (for normal length legs rather than 7/8 length with cuffs).
These are just SO comfortable to wear, and they’re nice enough to wear to the office with a nice silk blouse, too.
Black polyester ponte jersey from TruroFabrics.com – super nice quality stuff!
