Cool wool trousers

This was one of those spur of the moment projects. As a lot of you know already I’m working on starting a little business selling fabric online.

Last October I took a trip to Egypt to meet some of my potential suppliers and maybe find more suppliers and on one occasion walked into a wool fabrics factory. It turns out they have a factory outlet and they sell some really good stuff there including a lot of delightful soft 100% wool fabrics. And who am I to resist! I bought myself a meter and a half with the plan to make trousers. Classic cigarette trousers.

    Only can repeat that the trousers are lovely :-) It is my long-playing intention to make a plaid trousers but I cannot decide for many years as I have wide hips otherwise I’d love to make and wear the same! Great job:-)

      Thank you so much Oksana :) I have wide hips too. The first time I tried a boyfriend jeans on I thought it’d look horrible because of that, but it didn’t, so now I’m more open to trying things with room in that area and so far it’s been good :) I think you should at least try once with a not expensive fabric to find out how you feel about it :)

      Sounds encouraging… and very tempting. If I am decisive enough some day, it will be thanking to your words. I have to think about the right fabric.

    These pants are great and really suit you. I love the fabric too. I have had my eye on this pattern for a while and might give it a try now.
