Having seen some lovely versions of these trousers on Instagram I decided to give the pattern a try after buying 3 metres of this lovely cotton crepe in the Seasalt sale. It’s a lovely fabric to sew, and as I had plenty of fabric left I decided to make a vest top too.

I’m 5’4” so cut out view E to make them full length, but after trying them on decided to remove 10cm to wear them cropped.

The top has darts and the sides are left open at the bottom. I cut out view B but felt it swamped the trousers so took 10cm from the length. I also added 5cm to the side seams as I wear my trousers below my waist line and wanted to keep the opening below the trouser band. The bias binding was in my stash and is a nice contrast.

Not quite a faux jumpsuit as I won’t tuck the top in 😺

I will be making more of these comfy trousers. They fit straight out of the packet as they are quite a loose fit, really like the flat front and pockets  😺✂✂
