A few good trouser patterns are essential for any discerning handmade wardrobe. Here’s Carrie – the latest from Sew Over It
Inspired by the effortless summer wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw (for those of you not in the know, she’s from the popular series, Sex In The City), the Carrie Trousers are perfect for everyday wear.
They’re great for wearing with flats for a casual daytime look or Sunday stroll through the park, but look as good dressed up with heels for an evening out.
These trousers have a loose-fit through the leg, which is slightly tapered towards the ankle. There’s no tricky closures to contend with and they have a flattering flat-fronted, elasticated-back waistband with pretty pleats at the front.
Practical and ideal for any season the Carrie Trousers are mid-rise and feature useful (and we think flattering) slanted pockets at the side seams. Easy to fit, they’re a great starting point for newbie trouser sewers who want to get to grips with trouser construction.
