but almost certainly didn't.
I'm going to show you a pair of trousers which has actually been in a picture on this blog before. I made these trousers back in November and wore them in the pictures of 'wearing a square'. At that time, I didn't photograph them on their own and I cut those pictures at hip length so they were not on display at all.
I may have forgotten about them because they were very easy to make or because, at that point in time, I wasn't quite sure about how to make them work in my wardrobe. I shouldn't have because they're great. They're comfortable and, by now, I love the look.
These are rather skinny trousers, not my usual look.
I guess I was inspired both by pictures of vintage '50 cigarette trousers and by the many versions of the Colette Patterns 'Clover' trousers showing up all over the web. Mine have a similar tapered leg and side closure but instead of being waist high, they are a few centimeters higher and finished with a facing. They were very easy because that's just my trouser sloper with an extra high waistline put on. And I'm very happy with them because I finally got that flat-butt-adjustment down to a T. Look:
(I took only one picture from the side. I'm actually looking down at the trousers, not trying to smell at my armpit ;)
I made these in a wool blend with some stretch and by now I keep mentally going through my stash looking for fabric to make another pair...
