Contrasting purple cording along sides and around the waist. I will post a cording ‘how to’ soon as it a great technique to adorn the simpliest garment.

Material Notes

Grey and purple cotton

    I love the pintuck detail for the pleats. And with the name Bella Ciao, I can’t help having a little Hellblinki Sextet running through my head.

      Thanks for your comment and the link! Yeah it is from the famous Italian partisan song. Check on youtube there are plenty of nice versions too. Another song I like is ‘Nichola and Barthes’ by Joan Baez and Enio Morricone. Keep well!

    I didn’t know if this pattern would work for me, but now that I’ve seen what you did closing up those pleats and wow, great job! I think I’ll give them a try!

    They look great! I’m trying to do them at the mo, but they are super big! I like the piping you did too! Well done

    I agree with the others! These trousers look very well made and perfectly fitted! I like how you did the pleats. The technical drawing makes it seem like they ‘open’ a bit higher which would (I think) give a weird kind of bulge at the hip.

    I love these, they look so professional! I attempted this pattern last week and was so disappointed when they were too big!! ( I am a stick:(…)
