Benesov, Czech R...
I made these while I was pregnant with my second child (see above :D). I loved the pattern in Burda Magazine, and I combined both versions of the pattern. I made the easier version, but made them longer and with topstitching around the yoke. I thought I didn´t have enough fabric, but I´m quite short and in the end I had plenty for long trousers!
The first time I could try these on was three months after I gave birth – I made these without even trying them on. That was definitely great, no stress, just sewing. But, it´s quite loose design, so I could take the risk.
I like them! A bit 80s, maybe, and I wouldn´t have guessed I would some day wear something like this (trousers with pleats!), but I like it now. Oh well, the world is a stage and we all are actors…
