The most enjoyable garment I’ve sewn this year

A review of Bella Loves Patterns Billy Trousers

Reviewed by AlexJudgeSews on 16th September, 2022

I loved sewing these trousers, the instructions are thorough and include lots of lovely techniques so that your garment looks as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.  The pockets are bias bound, as are some seams, there’s a back welt pocket and fly front.  I made a size 14, grading up to a 16 at the waist, but made no other changes and am really happy with the fit.  I used a wool/viscose blend fabric with Autumn/Winter in mind, but they’d look just as good in Linen for the Summer.  If you’d like to see them in action I’ve recorded a review on my YouTube channel
