Nice trousers. I like the high waist and wide leg shape especially. Its possible to set a pocket into a side dart by the way - I did some linen trousers like this in the summer and blogged it. Mentioning this in case you make them again and want to try a pocket without doing a welt.

Thanks Petro! I've set pockets into darts in trousers before, and into skirt with no side seams, but it would ruin the line of these trousers with how high the dart is.

Not everyone can wear this style pants, but you definitely can. AND you look wonderful wearing them! Your finishing details on the inside are so lovely. Very nice work!

Beautiful vintage trousers - they look perfect on you because you have the figure and height to carry it off perfectly!! Great sewing here

I love these high waist trousers. What a classic Katherine Hepburn look you've achieved!
