Description

Self drafted trouser pattern. I have used this pattern soo many times, the paper is getting really holey from all the pins! The wool is a blend, it has 5% polyester and 2% elastene, which means it won’t go all baggy in the knees and bum area. It has a great weave, almost a linen-look. I bound the edge of the inner waistband with a bias strip of cotton to make the inside a little prettier. This pattern has made wool trousers, linen trousers and cotton trousers. It fits really well, and I love a straight leg cut.

    Very chic…the items you make are always so lovely-if you ever have to buy clothes from shops you must be disappointed with the fit!
