I just couldn't decide which pattern to use. I found a few nice classic patterns and a few nice jeans ones. But the pattern I chose in the end is somewhere in between - casual elegance. Why not?
I couldn't find a pic online. It's the flared pants pattern from Burda Easy fashion F/S 2009 , model F.
It was a great day when I realized flared pants are the best for my body type. I don't usually make pants so I hope to make a great pair with this pattern and fabric.
A cotton-wool blend from stash. The darker side is the wrong side but I like it better. And it looks marvelous with my new flowery tops!
I made the muslin, tried it on and...boohoo - it was too small. Fortunately, I added 2 cm at the sides, just in case. After unpicking the seams and sewing again at 1 cm everything looked much better.
I don't plan to sew the muslin again. It looks good enough to me like this. What do you think? Should I be brave and cut the good fabric? :-)
