Description

Since I’m back to university I am at home a lot, so wear mostly loungy clothes. But I still want to look put together. Just because. So when I saw these pants, I knew they fit the bill. It still took me 2 years to finally make them. They were easy enough, it just takes me a looooot of time to start things.
I used navy blue romanit jersey, which is extremely soft and nice on the skin. However, it also stretches quite a bit when worn. Therefore, and to add abit of cuteness, I used a (presumably quilting) cotton for the facings. The fabric for that is from my grandma’s stash that I inherited after she died.
So I tripley love these pants: they’re comfortable, yet stylish, and they remind me of my grandma.

    These look great! How nice that they have something so personal incorporated into them – it’s very pretty fabric. Do I spy a Sorbetto top? If so, it looks perfect in sunny yellow!

      Thank you! Yes, it is a Sorbetto. I topstitched the pants with yellow thread, so I thought they’d match (I also like contrasting navy with yellow).

      Thank you! I didn’t make the pattern, it’s from Burda Style magazine 08/2011. You can find the pattern here online to download, so you can make it too!
