      Up to your styling.

      These are great trousers because they are very versatile. Depending on the fabric you use and how you accessorize them, you can end up with something you can wear to work or something you can go camping in. Very comfortable and contemporary. The cuff elastics are a little tricky to attach as you have to stretch them as you sew and you could do with a third arm to hold your machine in place but it's all worth it. The pockets are large and comfortable. The rectangular stitching on the front section of the waist elastic is a nice detail and makes it lie flat on your stomach. I made 2 pairs so far and getting ready for a third, winter-y one.

      • Any tips or advice to other makers? The right length is important for the style so make sure you try them on well before you attach the cuff.

      Almost Long Trousers

      Excellent pattern - clear and easy to follow. These would work in a wide range of materials and can be casual or formal for year round wardrobe staples. The pockets look beautifully tailored. My first foray into trouser making and if anything these were generously sized. I didn't do the cuffs on the bottom but extended the leg and it worked well. I will definitely be making more but tweaking seam allowance/ grading sizes. These would make wonderful pajama bottoms too!

      Great design for trousers.

      Very good pattern on thick paper with clear instructions. I really like the design of the pockets. The flat front gives a flattering look and I love the elasticated cuffs (which are easy to do if you follow the step by step instructions). Please can you make this in a wider range of sizes as it will be popular with lots of body shapes? I am a UK size 18 and the L has been perfect in the Cuff Dress, Hoodie Dress and Apron Dress, but I needed to let these out a little. I will definitely make them again.

      • Any tips or advice to other makers? The cuffs are easy if you follow the instructions.

      Playground and work pants, all in one

      Love the simple lines and forgiving fit. Fitting pants is a challenge for me, as I am quite short, my abdomen is still recovering after pregnancy and I have a very flat backside. These worked almost out of the package. They for sure get an A from me :)
