The blog has been on the back burner lately as I haven’t felt like writing. These trousers by Itch-to-Stitch are so amazing though, that I had to show them off. Aren’t you ready to get back into some real pants? They come in sizes 00-40!
Here’s a summary of the Upland Trouser features:
- High rise with waist facing (no waistband)
- Fit through waist and hip and relaxed at thighs and below
- Full length trouser legs with the hem hitting slightly above the ground
- Front slanted pockets
- Back double-welt pockets with loop and button closures
- Designed for non-stretch woven fabric
I sewed a muslin and discovered the waist was a bit big and quite a bit of pooling fabric underneath my bum. One of the other testers had done a flat seat adjustment, and I decided to try the same. This is the tutorial I used. I picked some chambray from stash to try it out. Oh my, what a difference! All of a sudden, I had perfectly fitting trousers without any other adjustments! This is Melrose Top with the blue pair.
With such a great outcome, I had to sew another pair in linen. Unfortunately, I wasn’t paying attention and the waist “grew”, ending up way too big at my waist. I’ve figured out a fix though, and these two pair of Upland Trousers will be some of my favorite pants! The pinkish coral pair are paired with Chirripo Top.
