Dream trousers (Embroidered cotton trousers)

About a year and a half ago I moved from buying fabric for a specific project in mind, to buying fabrics I loved at the shops and then decide later what I make with it. Sometimes I had a vague idea of what to make, sometimes not at all. Some months ago though I started feeling bad about all the fabrics in my stash and decided not to buy anything without a predefined project and to start stash busting, although I did develop a new habit of buying one piece of fabric from any new land I travel to, then it carries a nice memory. And that I don’t feel bad about.

Read and see more :)

On a slightly separate note:
Dear Burda sewists and creators,
During this coming week, I’ll publish a survey that I’d really appreciate you answering for me. I’m considering starting a little fabric store online and need your help. The English version of the survey is ready and I’m working on the Norwegian. Both will be released when the Norwegain one is also ready. There will be giveaways. And double chances to win one of them via Instagram. If you’re not following me yet, please do. It will be announced there. My alias is hayek.m83. If you’re not on Instagram, the links will come during the week with my next project.
Thank you all in advance and hope to gain some of you as customers :)

    Hi and how did I miss these trousers. They’re gorgeous. I have used the trouser part of this jumpsuit quite a bit as it’s such a great fit. I love your trousers x

      Thank you so much! Since it’s a tall jumpsuit the crotch is quite long on me, but that’s a simple alteration for next time :)
