I really love the word trousers. I love the Wallace and Gromit film, The Wrong Trousers. And I love these trousers, even thought they have a flaw or two.
I made this from Simplicity 3688, a reproduction 1940’s pattern. I used a lightweight wool that frays like the devil, as someone from the 1940’s might say, and I made no alterations to the pattern.
I’m a fan of the high-waisted look, even though it can make ones stomach look a bit large (sigh). I feel so glamorous in these trousers, they make me feel like I’m the star of a BBC mini-series and my annoying fiance is upsetting me, but instead of getting angry I respond with a world-weary, Must You, Darling?
Hence the name.
