Well, truth be told, these are a trial-run made in pyjama fabric! They are New Look 6216; it says 'easy' on the packet, and they were. I am chuffed to have made some trousers, and I'm very pleased with them.
As they are pyjamas rather than outerwear, they can be a bit more fun - the fabric has the cutest little owls on. It is brushed cotton, comfy and cosy. The waistline is a mixture of wide elastic and drawstring. And they fit!
The trousers have cute little pockets, which came together remarkably easily!
It has taken me ages to finish these as I stumbled on the hemming; I was being lazy, avoiding it, for all the other fun sewing jobs I wanted to finish first. But once I'd finished, I saw a pair that are an absolute match in Marks and Spencer, so feel confident this is a going to be a good shape for summer trousers.
I am hoping to soon make my mum some more, as actual trousers, in a blue linen. And these were a good size for me too, so I may make myself some after that.
