Work trousers nailed!
A review of Closet Core Patterns Sasha Trousers
For years I have struggled with my thigh, hip, waist ratio and never achieving more than 2 out of the 3 in ready to wear.
But no more.
In accordance with my measurements I made a size 8 at the hip and graded 2 sizes up to a size 12 at the waist.
For my Closet Core Ginger Jeans, I cut out the same but took the waist in to a size 10 on fitting, so I thought I’d be safe.
Before starting on the pockets I completed the darts and basted the legs and waist band together in a light coloured thread for a fitting. So pleased I did!!
Looking at the pattern photo, and also many other Instagram makes, these trousers take full advantage of the stretch of the fabric and are very fitting! The fabric was pulling everywhere and not at all flattering. Letting them out to a size 10 over the hip and bum did the trick. Thank goodness for 16mm seam allowances!!
I love them and have now found my ‘go to’ work trousers pattern!!
There’s more details on fitting and more photos on my sewing blog, Love, Lucie.
