Too fabulous for words, these sleek trousers are designed for medium or lightweight pants fabrics-try tropical
weight wool, chambray denim, narrow wale corduroy, velveteen, heavy washed linen, cotton sateen, gabardine or twill.
Tuxedo-style trouser sits neatly at the natural waist with a contrast contoured waistband, plus a classic front fly and
single darts front & back. Trouser features a trim fit through the waist, hips and thigh,with gently flared legs plus a
contrast side stripe for an extremely long, lean look.
You’ll rock this killer style all year round...summer fabrics demand you team them with a striped or solid Breton-style T;
make them in a classic ivory or midnight navy with a matching color satin stripe for a modern evening pant, or try some
classically muted menswear-style suiting fabrics for a super-chic office-ready look.
For sizes 6-8-10-12-14-16 you’ll need around 2 yards / 185cm fabric;
for sizes 18-20-22-24-26 you’ll need around 21/4 yards/ 206cm fabric.
All sizes require 1/4 yard” or 23 cm contrast fabric for the waistband, plus a piece approximately
8”/20 cm x 40”/101 cm for the side contrast panels...if you can cut these strips across the piece,
so much the better, just add another 1/4 yard or 23cm of contrast fabric.
You’ll also need 1x 8”/20cm zipper, 4 x 5/8”/1.25cm diameter buttons and enough interfacing to
interface the waistband. All fabric amounts are for 60”/150cm wide fabric.
