101 TROUSER : FREEDOM GARDEN

It’s been ages since I made these pants but the weather got cold right after and I haven’t been able to wear them until now. The choice of print for this pattern is quite the opposite of what I would normally choose, but once in a while I try to surprise myself. I’m starting to think more about pants (not jeans) as something I might wear and this seems like a good start.

The 101 Trouser is a very straightforward pattern and I made one little modification, based on a suggestion from Marnie that I might like a bit more of the ‘paper bag effect’ at the waist, so I added two inches to the height of the waistband piece (to give an overall 1″ extra).

In the double gauze these pants are so light and comfy. I usually use double gauze for tops and dresses, but it works really well with this style.  I’m going to try another version in a linen next to add to my summer wardrobe.
