Floral Ultimate Trousers

Well as I get ready for my first break of the year, I think to myself ‘I can’t possibly go away without something newly made’. So with only a few hours to spare I knock up a pair of our Ultimate trousers in floral fabric – very holiday-ish.

For those of you who don’t know the Ultimate trousers they fasten with a side concealed zip. (Fly trouser class will be coming in Autumn).

The fabric has a slight stretch to it so I decide to use a different cotton fabric to face them. Instead of interfacing the same fabric – not a big fan of interfacing so if I can get round it I will. Not sure the strawberry fabric was the best choice but was available to me in my mad sewing rush.

I decided to topstitch along waist as well instead of understitching – this adds more strength and again would help against unwanted give in the fabric.

Not sure if Spain will be ready for these jazzy numbers…. Planning on wearing them with a white blouse tied in a knot. Will let you know if I get any feedback – good or bad!
