Charcoal and teal pinstripe trousers
I made these simple trousers for work over 3 sessions. The first to cut out, the second to do 2/3rds of the sewing, the 3rd to finish the sewing and take a hanger photo.
These are sewn from a charcoal suiting fabric with a fine teal and aqua stripe running through it.
It is an appropriate work look with a little added interest that I love.
I've used my altered New Look 6216 pattern again because I love the easy to sew pockets and comfortable elastic waist. I always leave the tie off as I find that to be an unflattering detail over the tummy as well as making trousers look more casual.
I've not had chance to make the matching jacket yet, but I might still wear them tomorrow if I can find a suitable top for the warm weather (I have lots of teal tops but they are either long sleeved or velvet so will be too warm). I've not made the SWAKOP top yet.
