My best pair of handmade pants ever: The Sewaholic Thurlow Trousers
Sewaholic Thurlow Trouser pattern was released a few months back it was inevitable that I try sewing them up.
I wasn't totally sold on them at first, I wasn't sure about the wider leg look. After finishing them I appreciate the fuller legs. I used a super awesome 100% cotton denim I picked up for ONE DOLLAR (over four yards!) at a thrift shop. I lined the waistband and made the pockets with an electric blue cotton (possibly a quilters cotton blend material- it was a goodie I got off Freecycle.)
All in all, I think I really like these. They sit nicely in front. The backside is a tad snug but I can easily alter it a bit. It was my first time making welted pockets- I'll do better next time but they look pretty dang good to me.
