New Favourite Trousers
A review of Merchant & Mills The Eve Trousers
Everybody needs a pair of Eve trousers in their wardrobe. I absolutely love this pattern. They are such a flattering shape – they are easy to make coming together really quickly and are even easier to wear. I graded between a 12 waist (slightly big for me but my waist measurement falls exactly between a size 10 and 12 waist and I loathe a tight waistband!) and 8 at the hips. I also took in the inside leg seams from both front and back legs by 1/2″ which are all fairly usual alterations in trouser patterns for me not being blessed with decent thighs. I wore them immediately and have done several times since and I have some navy Ramie waiting in my linen cupboard for a second pair. I just need to get round to sewing them before the end of the summer!!
