My Favourite Trousers

on April 20, 2012

I love these trousers!! I made them after completing a sewing course and felt brave enough to use fabric that cost more then £3 a metre!!

I used Amy Butler Sari Blooms in Raspberry, after I saw a pair of trousers on the Amy Butler website and needed to find a  pattern and make them.

The picture I saw had the trim on the hems like this, but when you buy the fabric this edging runs down the selvedge edge, so I had to cut it off and sew it on afterwards. I inserted a zip on the side and additional darts on the front to make them fit better and I am really pleased with them.

I always get complimented wearing these, either at home, or at work with a suit jacket!!
