This is the pair of shorts I made over the basic dressmaking evening classes I was attending at AFOL Moda in Milan until the middle of December. The shorts have two tucks for each side of the front (left and right), zipper fly, slash pockets on the sides, one welt pocket on the left back and turn-up. The exercise was the same of the skirt (see my vintage skirt), that is to choose a model, design your own pattern based on your measurements and sew the trousers.
I used a camel corduroy fabric and the Atelier Brunette’s Twist Mustard cotton for the inside and the pockets lining. I bought all on Supercut.it.
I used a hidden hook to close the shorts.
I have to practise more the welt pocket. It’s not exactly precise because it tends to get opened (I made this mistake because I was in a hurry and I didn’t baste before to sew…).
I finished up the turn-up by hand.
I like this second self-designed garment very much too. It’s very comfortable and I think I’ll wear it very often over this winter.
