Farbenmix Olympia

I have wanted to make these trousers for what feels like forever. Actually it was only released in July last year but I delayed getting the pattern for a while ( I may have the odd pattern for girls trousers that I haven’t made up yet, possibly) but eventually had to give in.

They are cool, pieced skinny leg trousers and I just love all the details. The piecing, the gathers behind the knee. Well, all of it.

I decided on pink because I have an extensive collection of pink fabric and I have a inkling that Elsa may be starting to go off pink a little. Ahhh! Need to get it all used up before she decides that purple is the new pink.















I didn’t have a pink zipper so had a go at a button fly. I love it! She doesn’t ever actually open them anyway.

The back. I added about 5 cm in length. The pattern has them stopping at a 7/8th length but I wanted these to reach the ankle. As you can see they still need hemming – she didn’t want to take them off again! I still have to add buttons to the pockets too.

Mick thinks the pockets are over the top. What do you think?















I may have some modelled shots to show you soon.

Pattern: Farbenmix Olympia
Fabric: Local and Hilco corduroy.

    • Aww. Thanks Shirley. I was originally planning green buttons but may scale back and make them pink to make them less stand out.
      I love this pattern. I want to make 100 more pairs!

  1. Suzie, I forget, what kind of embroidery machine do you have? I’m looking at the 200E Janome and wondering if that would be a good starter machine or would it be better to hold out for the next one up.

  2. Hi Shirley.
    I don’t know a huge amount about the different embroidery machines out there I’m afraid. The 200E has a USB port which is very desirable. Unfortunately it only has a small embroidery area which might be somewhat restrictive if you want to stitch out larger areas.
    I guess it depends on your budget.
