Description

I’ve been unable to find the kind of trousers I want in stores for quite a long time; the trousers that fit well in the legs are always too large and low in the waist, while the ones in my waist size are too skinny and constricting in the legs. So, with more than a little help from various people (including several Burdastyle members—you know who you are), I learned to draft a pair of modern trousers that fits the way I want it to: with a decently high waist, rather slim but not skinny in the legs, and hemmed at right about ankle-height so that I wouldn’t have to roll the legs up to keep them off the floor when I take off my shoes.

Oh, and did I mention that it’s completely hand-sewn?

(More info and somewhat larger pictures on my journal )

      And they fit even better than they look. ;)
