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.
Lovely Farbenmix /Smilas world ribbons.
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.
