My High Waisted Favourite:-)

Don’t remeber if I ever said that but I am not a fan of trousers. I only wear them for comfort or warmth. But sometimes you see the model and just can’t but make it because you feel this thing is yours:-) I am telling about these pants as if they are alive:-) But I liked them indeed and despite they seem to be too fitting for me, took the risk to sew. And enjoyed the process and hope will enjoy the wearing:-)
I have some remarks as for the sewing and more photos here, nothing special but can be in use.
The pants’ silhouette is very flattering with their fitting around the hips and widening to the bottom… at least for my figure. So just sew them, you’ll understand what I mean:-)

    Your pants are great; such a nice fit. You definitely have the figure for them! I used to love wearing this style of pants. I enjoyed reading your blog story. :-) We’ve only had 2cm of snow, all around us there has been snow, and in the mountains, which is great for the water supply. Your thoughts about how much fabric is needed for what size is inspiring! Looking forward to seeing your jacket. (or a lined skirt)

      Dear, Rita, thank you so much.. I am so happy you read and like my blogposts and I’m very proud of your compliments! I’ve started working on jacket already, and want to see it ready myself a lot, too:-)
      You probably live in some charmed place as the snow run away from your area :-) I saw the heavy snowfalls and storms on TV and am glad they didn’t occupy your area.

    I agree with you about this pattern, I just loved it when I saw it in the magazine and traced it immediately! It’s really very flattering and although you wear pants you still look very feminine and stylish! Now I have to make them too!

      Thank you very much:-) I like the sailor version a lot as well but I would lengthen them anyway.
