Obvious puns aside, that is exactly how I would describe my latest trouser offering, although if I was going to be completely critical, they could have done with being slightly more snug around the waist. Oh well, there are worse things in life than wearing a belt!
Once again I have used my altered Sewaholic Thurlow pattern but this time I added 2cm to the back rise, which makes the back side of my pants sit far nicer. You will just have to take my word for this because I draw the line at close up shots of my derriere!
The fabric I chose is a stretch cotton canvas that I picked up at a recent Lincraft half off end of season sale. Lucky for me, they had some new seasons fabric in at the time. This fabric is fantastic. I wish it came in different prints and sold colours but their floral was just a little over the top for pants for my liking.
So what now? Well, now that I have a comfortable and flattering tnt pants pattern, there will be more making an appearance. As much as I like making skirts and dresses, actually pants suit my lifestyle and our fickle weather conditions for three quarters of the year more! Oh, and I am still debating whether I need to add a little more fullness in the back to accommodate my athletic calves (not my words, that is what the pattern drafting sites call them)
