Alphonse Trousers

Republique du Chiffon


In stock

Alphonse is inspired by the men’s locker room and faithful to the DRC spirit. Slightly wide thanks to its pleats at the front, it is a comfortable pant in the mid-high waist to wear with a pair of sneakers or with pumps for a more trendy style.

    I love this pattern, from the way the instructions were written – comprehensive without too much instruction – to the way they look and feel when on. The pattern appealed to me as I liked the tapered leg with pleated waistband and the side pockets.

    I have the printed pattern and traced my size off, adding the seam allowance. Although this is more lengthy than just being able to cut straight from the pattern it does mean that all the prep is done ready for the next time(s) I want to make these.

    I made them in a size larger than usual (French size 42) as I am currently on medication that makes you gain inches round the middle (4 inches in my case) but then got a bug and lost a lot of weight in 1 week so they are a bit looser than I would like! However, they still look great, are super comfy and as they are casual summer trousers being a bit loose is no bad thing – room for holiday lunches!

    I will definitely make them again, potentially in a light wool for work, in the size smaller.

      Hi Naomji, I’d love to know how you got on with the pocket construction and then attaching the waistband. I’m finding them quite confusing as it has you make the whole pocket and attach it to the front piece but doesn’t describe how it will then attach to the back??? I would live your advice!
