Description

my first trousers :) I bought an old butterick 6154 from an op shop for $0.50 it was a couple of sizes too small, so I had a guess at adding 2.5cm to each side and it worked out pretty good! Probably they are a tiny bit big in the back, but it was too hard to keep adjusting.
Trousers are WAY easier to sew than I thought! getting a good fit is probably the hard bit, but the actual piecing together is easy
oh and you can make some pretty awesome suspenders too with this pattern!

Material Notes

100% linen $8/m (if your in Melbourne get yourself down to Footscray for some awesome fabric bargains!)
