It seems like such a long time ago that I made something for myself which wasn't a knit top... I needed more summer weight trousers for work. I've never worn beige or sand colours before but I had picked up this fabric, a thin twill-weave cotton, on sale at 1 euro a meter a while ago. So, I decided to give it a go.
I've always liked flared and/or wide trousers and with a thine fabric, those are definately the way to go. I also wanted a high waistline so I could tuck in the wider tops I've made recently.
I made these using my trouser sloper (for the first time with a slight swayback adjustment, correcting a flaw which started to annoy me more and more in my existing high waisted trousers) but there is a rather similar looking pattern in Burdastyle magazine 10 2010 (avaible online as well). Mine are just perfectly proportioned for me, and have double welt pockets with flaps at the back.
I'm a bit worried the fabric may wrinkle easily, but these trousers are extremely comfortable so I should be able to wear them a lot.
I've noticed I keep planning all sorts of tops which I can make to wear with this colour and shape and I think I will need a big straw hat as well...
