Stylearc Elle Version 4


Although I have only written about three pairs of Elle pants, this
pair makes version four.  Between my mustard pair and this pair I also made a pair for Courteney who bikes from her flat to Uni every day and finds that her pants wear quite quickly.  These being elastic waisted are also I imagine quite comfortable for biking.


Just like my last pair, I added 1cm to each side seam and 1cm also to the back rise.  The fabric was bought with my bengaline haul from Backstreet Bargains. Although they were sourced from the same place at the same time, there are quite big differences in stretch and feel between the bengalines and this pair I feel have the most stretch.  For this reason they tend to end up in creases but I am not too bothered because they are only for work and are really comfortable to wear.  Backstreet Bargains called the colour charcoal grey but these are so close to black that unless you put it beside black you would think they were black.  For this reason I haven't even bothered making up the black bengaline.


I think I will retire this pattern for a while now because I have enough pairs to see me through the winter but rest assured it will be back!

  1. I'm loving Stylearc patterns at the moment. The Elle pant could easily live in my weekend wardrobe. Love your Archer too. Are you my style twin across the ditch?

    1. Haha! Kiwis and Aussies have dress sense in common I think! Smart casual pretty much sums up my entire life, work included which is why both the Elle Pant and Morris blazer appeal to me.
