Sew Over It Carrie Trousers (hacked!)

Sew Over It Carrie Trousers Sew Over it Silk Cami

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.
