Likewise you could add sleeves to the dress for a 70’s vibe. This is an incredibly versatile pattern, and would be a great base for many pieces to add to your your me-made wardrobe.

The Fabric

The trousers made, were designed to co-ordinate with various tops already completed in a cotton gingham. They would work equally well in linen, denim or corduroy, fabulous for the daytime during the summer or autumn months. Alternatively a brocade, silk or heavy weight satin would look great for an evening look. 

The Make

This is such a quick and easy pattern to make, so much so, it is quite addictive! Just a couple of patterns pieces, along with a facing to form the waist band.

The trousers are incredibly fast to make, and the cut is simple and elegant. Every woman need a trouser pattern that is flattering to her shape. This pattern for sure, is now my ultimate trouser pattern.
