So firstly apologies for the lack of posts recently. I went interrailing round Eastern Europe with the boyfriend and it was amazing! We booked it less than a month before going though so lots to organise in minimal time. Managed to squeeze out a couple new makes for my holiday wardrobe before going though, so there will be a blog post to come soon!
This one’s all about the trousers though.
I’ve loved the patterned trousers trend so thought I’d give it a go. These are Cynthia Rowley pattern 1371. I loved the shorts so thought if make the trousers too. I made one alteration which was to remove the waistband and use black binding as the finish. The super high-waisted style worked well for shorts but I thought it might be a bit much for trousers.
I used material bought at Kendal’s indoor market and it was labelled as ex-Topshop. It’s quite thick, so perfect for trousers, and I really loved the monochrome pattern – so much so it took me ages to pick something to make with it! I get such a fear of wasting any particularly nice fabric I buy, so usually sits in my stash while I’m being very indecisive. This fabric had the same pattern on the other side but with the colours reversed, so even more choices before I could even start sewing. Honestly it’s a miracle these trousers ever got made!
I’m really happy with how they turned out. I just love the shape of these trousers.
Next for this pattern will be to make the top in view A… Or I might be brave and copy one of my favourite sewing blogs House of Pinheiro and try making the pattern into a playsuit or jumpsuit – hers was amazing!
Thanks for reading!
