A review of Melilot Unisex Huy Trousers
Paul had been wanting a pair of woven elasticated pants for a while so I was thrilled when the Huy pants pattern was released. I love the double pocket details and that this pattern is un-gendered.
Just a couple of things I did differently to the pattern.
– I cut the back pocket yoke on the fold.
– I didn’t understand the instructions for the waistband so I did my own two-piece waistband and used
I’ve seen people skip the back pockets or add patch pockets both ideas are great. I highly recommend non-roll elastic for waistbands it’s worth the bit extra!
3cm wide non-roll elastic. – I didn’t interface the corner of the front pocket which I immediately regretted.
– lengthen the front pockets to hold his huge phone.
– topstitched all the seams to give the fabric more support as it’s a lightweight Tencel denim.
