Last year I made 7 pairs of trousers, which you can see here on my 'sewing 2013' page. Five of those were based on the Thurlow pattern. Of these, four pairs (these, these, these and these) were on very high rotation during Autumn and Winter. So much so, that they are looking a little sad :(
To prevent a wardrobe crisis when the cooler weather eventually strikes, I knocked up another pair in basic black to help see me through the year.
So what shall I do? I love pleated pant styles, but found my first dabble with Burda 7250 was a disaster and I'm not sure I want to go back there. I feel like I'm on an eternal quest for non-distressed charcoal skinny jeans and have been unable to find any. Should I try to make some? Where can I find dark grey/charcoal denim or nice stable twill/drill? What pattern could I use without having to fuss too much over fit?
Do you have any suggestions for me and the future of my trouser/pant making? Or can you just point me in the direction of some nice skinny jeans in dark charcoal? :)
