Tuck the top into the trousers to give the illusion of an all-in-one! A versatile pattern to make again and again in all types of fabrics. The Helicopter Trousers have pleats at the front and minimal gathers at the back give to give a sleek look without the need for a zip. The Helicopter Top is a simple shell design, slightly fitted through the bust and hanging loose at the waist. Bust darts ensure no baggy armholes!
