I found this free pattern for cycling bloomers by Bikes & Bloomers and decided to give it a try.
I designed and sewed a pair of pleated trousers with an easy elasticated paper-bag waist. I used locally woven cotton-linen Kultavilla fabric.
I practiced my trouser-fitting skills and made the Sara chinos by Mönsterfabriken using cotton chambray fabric. Who doesn't love trousers with big pockets!
I made a pair of Rae trousers from the Saara and Laura Huhta's book Breaking the pattern. This was an easy and beginner-friendly trouser project.
I made my daughter a Regency or Empire style outfit: a dress, a bonnet (a free pattern included!), bloomers and slippers. Read how it all came together.
I made my daughter a new sports outfit by using two self-drafted patterns (Download the pattern for the leggings!) and Ottobre 4/2018 33. Cool cut trousers.
I made the Evie top from the new Sew Over It Work to Weekend ebook. I also drafted a pair of jeans using my trusted trouser sloper and an old jeans pattern.
I managed to grab literally the last Alpi trousers pattern from Named clothing. I was lucky since I had planned on making these trousers for a while. However, don’t bother trying to buy this pattern, at least from Named. Some of their retailers might still have some of these pattern left even though this pattern is fairly old. Anyway, I like the basic look of these trousers. They are quite masculine, pretty loose and have a bit lower waistline than in most of the trousers I have lately made. I got some nice army green cotton sateen in a nice bargain from Materials, Helsinki. The fabric has a tiny bit…
This time I show the V1440 Donna Karan collection leggings. I decided to use some black leather to decorate the bottom part of the front trouser legs.
I tested the pattern for the Flint trousers by Megan Nielsen. These trousers have an unusual closure that is hidden inside the left pocket and no zipper!
