I am the Charlie Brown of sewing trousers.
It's true! Despite Colette Patterns' amazing step-by-step trouser sew-along and other trouser-specific tutorials, the process remains an exercise jaw-clenching, teeth-gnashing, and the occasional hair-pulling frustration. Always a lady, me.
So I'm not going to do it anymore. Buh-bye trouser patterns, hello thrift shop!
This isn't too much of a hardship for me, actually, as I don't wear them much. I own one pair of jeans, one pair of black chinos, and one pair of wide-legged trousers. I'm an avid skirt and dress-wearer and the only times you'll see me sporting said bifurcated bottoms is during the dead of winter when my legs feel like two frozen sticks; or on particularly windy days when my modesty must needs preserving; or when I go to yoga.
I would love to find out where I can find a great pair of 1960's style cigarette trousers like Audrey's, though. Any suggestions?
