tweed trousers

Added Jan 6, 2008

Den Haag, Nether...






I have only made jeans and corduroy trousers before, but now I decided to go for something different with this great pink and sand coloured tweed I bought on sale in spring. Really high waisted trousers with wide legs and a fly front (without waistband, I used a facing instead), partly lined (till a bit below the knee). I made the pattern myself, based on my trouser block.

Material Notes

pink and sand coloured wool chevron tweed, zipper, lining fabric

    Gorgeous – I LOVE these. Even the “high waisted” pants they sell in stores lately end below your belly button. These are very Katharine Hepburn.
