it started with a kiss

Darlene's Ultimate Trousers

My first trousers ever!

I used Sew Over It Ultimate Trousers sewing pattern for this.  I tested the pattern by making a muslin first but I know it will be long so straight away I shortened it and raised the waistline following their tutorial. There were "smile" lines in the crotch area so I re-draw the shape of the curves.

I used this blended wool pincheck-print material which reminds me of the uniforms of professional chefs!

There's nothing much to say about the construction of the trousers as it is very straight forward and everything is detailed in their sewalong.

I wore these with my second Astoria (my first is here). I bought this fabric from Girl Charlee; part of their Valentine collection.

That is one project cross off my list!

See you on my next post!
