Sky High

Added Feb 22, 2011

Here’s a pair of rather high waisted pants I made last weekend. I don’t know why I’ve never been a big fan of sewing trousers but I had lots of fun making these! I’m certainly going to sew another pair for summer.

I customized the pattern of one I had made for myself at school.
PS. The last picture makes no sense.

And a little news: I’m one of Finnish Project Runway (click here) contestants and they’ll start airing it today! Huuu-huh, I’m terrified!
Episodes can be watched at Katsomo. I hope it works in your country, too!

Material Notes

Wool blends, zipper, button




Garment Type
Business, Casual

    Congratulations on project runway! I watched the entire show despite only knowing how to count in 3 in Finnish. (that did come in handy, now I know Leni has either two kids or a two year old). With the lack of project runway here now I will probably keep watching despite the slight language barrier. Good job

    Wow, nice job! The last picture gives a quirky fun look to the pants, I think. Good luck on Project Runway!

    Super-original, like all your creations. And looking great on you. I am a fan of high-waisted trousers, although I’ve never made a pair quite that high or that fitted all over.

    Best of luck with the project runway contest (or have they filmed it all before airing it? In which case I hope you had a great time)
