Day 7 of Me Made May and its a lovely sunny day so out comes the warmer weather garb. Elasticated waist, hurrah! I made these trousers about 2 years ago and really enjoyed it. I loved the online class that Lisa Comfort made, especially as a beginner, and was delighted with actual trousers at the end of it!
I widened the legs quite a bit and turned them up for a baggy 80’s vibe that I thought suited the pale denim. At the time i thought I’d messed up the waistband bit where the elastic joins, but now I don’t even notice it.
