I used the pattern of the Burdastyle Bella-pants to sew trousers with vintagestyle. The high waist and the wide legs reminds me of the style in the twenties and thirties. I inserted a zipper and use also buttons to close the pants. I worked the pockets without pleats to make the look more plain and elegant. For the lining at the waist and in the pockets I used a green cotton with white flowers, to get a little contrast and special detail.
grey “salt-and-pepper” gabardine; green cotton with white flowers
