With these trousers and an ancient pair of J Crew sailor pants as inspo, I wanted to make a pair! Searching for an appropriate pattern I discovered The Romero Trousers by Pauline Alice. Before I could get started, Rosie spied it and a couple of summer shorts for her jumped to the start of the sewing que. This pattern is AWESOME!!!!! I have complicated it a bit by using duck, but it was the best choice to get the look, in vivid color, that she was going for. I have stitched up a 40, but with about an inch off the hem, 1/2 inch rather than the 5/8 inch side seams and small wedges out of the center back and side seams fading to nothing in about 4 inches.
|Aren't they the cutest??????|
|I used the straight waist band as prescribed and it stands away from the body just a bit. On her next pair, already in process, I am using a self drafted curved band on that bit! We'll see how it goes!|
|My girl is the best! Aren't her flowers pretty?|
|Yep. She's wearing a Sorbetto Top by Colette. Her summer staple!|
