This months #MinervaMake is a very fun pair of trousers. Slightly clown-like perhaps, but fun nonetheless.
I used a basic straight legged big four trouser pattern and cropped them slightly as seems to be the vogue nowadays.
The Dressmaking Fabric is a viscose that feels lovely against the skin and is heavy enough that it works for trousers, but light enough that they will keep me perfectly cool for summer.
The original plan was to make a jumpsuit but when I'd put the trousers together I thought that there was enough print there, without any more being added, so I kept them as is. However, I'm playing around with the idea of making a matching crop top with the left over fabric.
All in all these trousers turned out really well, and I can't wait to wear them when the weather finally warms up a bit. What I need to make next is a series of brightly coloured tank tops to match!
