Pattern Description:
This project came out of my pattern-making lessons with Ayumi-sensei. Trousers are a tricky garment and I wanted to make them one more time under the guidance of experienced pattern-maker/seamstress.
Pattern Sizing:
38 European size
Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
n/a
Were the instructions easy to follow?
n/a
What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern?
I've always wanted to drafted a pair of trousers and I succeeded with help of my teacher.
Fabric Used:
The medium-weight fabric from my stash, used for this garment is a mix of wool, nylon and polyester. I added tiny Liberty patches to the visible pocket side.
Pattern alterations or any design changes you made:
n/a
Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?

Conclusion:

As I said earlier, trousers are a tricky pattern to draft but also alter when you use a commercial pattern! I don't think I would like to draft many trousers. But I will use this pattern as reference for my future patten-making adventures for sure!
