New pattern - Wardrobe by Me Hepburn Pants

Say hello to my new favourite pair of trousers! These are the Hepburn Pants, and they are now available from Wardrobe by Me and they are on sale until the end of September.

There are lots of lovely details in these trousers - welt back pockets, slant front pockets- which are nice and deep and a zip fly. I love all the pretty top stitching - I chose to go with a traditional 'Jeans' look, so I did yellow top stitching on my stretch denim fabric.

Construction wise, there are darts in the back and the waistband is contoured - so the trousers fit beautifully.

As with all WBM patterns, the instructions are clearly written, and each step is accompanied with a digital illustration. You can print just the size you want with the layers feature, and the pages are trimless (for A4 and letter paper) - so you save a lot of time putting the pattern together.

There are two leg widths to pick from - I chose to sew the narrower leg. Check out pictures of the other testers version on the pattern listing - they all look great!

If you have not done a zip fly before and are nervous about trying - don't be! Firstly the instructions are great and easy to follow, and if you want even more detailed images, Christina has also done a really helpful How-To on her blog - Here

The pattern is now available at the sale price of $10 (normal price $12) until the end of September.
