How to make and style our wide leg sewing patterns

After decades of skinny jeans the wide leg trousers are back in fashion. Our new high-waisted trousers sewing pattern features a superior fit that is flattering for many different body types.

So stop worrying about whether the look suits your body shape and start explore all the fun ways you can make and style the wide legged look.

The Art of Layering

From work to after work

The high-waisted trousers, shortened to culottes or shorts can be worn instead of a skirt. Make them in lightweight wool and combine with a pair of brogues and a turtleneck and you're all set for the office.

Switch to heels and red lips and you are ready for after work. Same for full length trousers, switch to a cami or tie bow shirt in silk or viscose and you are ready for anything!

Wide-legged inspiration from the past

Look to the cool trousers wearers of the thirties and forties for the ultimate style inspiration, you will find loads of photos on pinterest or via image search on Google.
