Review:  I cannot believe the fit that I manage to achieve. I am so stun with the result as shop bought trousers are always to loose at the waist, make my little bum look lost in so much fabric and the hem is 5 cm short. With these trousers, I finally got a bum to show. I will be doing this again and again. And now the length for my 1.18 leg length is covered.
Now channeling my inner Beyonce !

Me Made trousers styled with: New look top, Jorge Bishop shoes, Dad’s old watch and earrings were a gift for HRH.

  • WOWZA! These are HOT! You look amazing and these pants are perfect!!! Great job!!

  • nice pants…..have you thought of having your patterns published and sold? x

  • Hi Barbara. I haven’t thought about it. If there was demand I would probably consider. X

  • Beautiful Fit.

  • What book did you use? The pants are wonderful!

  • I used the rules for the IOLE Method. Its not really a book but Instructions and drawings on how to use the rulers…. You can find this under “trousers” post where I share what to do. I can recomend a good book – “Make your own patterns”- Rene Bergh. I found one in my local library and Loved.
