Well I did my usual procrastinate and only got as far as finding a pattern, McCall's M6901, checking measurements for which size I needed (see 'gin meltdown' thread in café) and cutting out the pattern pieces.

One day...

Ok Your User Name and Entry Number Catllar's entry
What is it and for whom :This is a wearable toile for me as a precursor to the Spring 3 piece .
Fabric and Pattern.:The pattern is Tessuti Tamako with added Catllar! The fabric is indian handwoven cotton from iTokri that I pre-washed and have kept a bit back to make a top.
 A short description : So these are 7/8 pants and they have a lantern shape achieved via a separate bit at the bottom. They were out the packet OK for fit but I changed the bottom hem to add a couple of front and back tucks to bring the ankle in a bit.  The interesting bit was the pocket construction as I've never made a pocket like this - just one piece stitched onto the pants front and the front pocket edge is formed from the seam allowance.


I like this shape - it'll work well under a long tunic too.

Having my usual issue posting pictures but bear with me!

When you add a second picture, make sure you click on 'more attachments' and don't just add it on top of the first one.
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

I'm all over the place today - that's exactly what I didn't do! Sorry. Will do better next time! I"ve been having too much birthday champagne and cake!

Starryfish's Entry

Burda 6613 wide leg trousers in wine wool flannel. I made size 42 at the hip, size 40 waist but about 3inches removed from the centre back. I have a narrow swayback and large bottom. Every new pattern has to have a toile made, and even then I usually take in some more at the back.

This shows some of the back curve!

I added a lining to just below the knee, and made the inner waistband from the lining fabric as well to reduce bulk. I cut the lining across the fabric so the selvedge is the hem, so no line shows.

They are nice and warm, and go well with the Ottobre blouse I made in January. I had enough wool left over for a waistcoat, but haven't sewed it up yet.
A day without sewing is a day wasted.

Wow, two very nice trousers - good fit on both!

I did not get to do anything to my trousers whilst at my parents house - time was spend otherwise. But I am sure to finish them this month.
