Like so many people I’m struggling to find the perfect trouser pattern. I’m half way there since everyone says the back of the pattern I’m using now is a perfect fit! Now if I can just sort the front…
The problem is that I want pockets. In many ways the style I want is like gents trousers, but with a side zip (I always use a concealed zipper and it works great). The trousers I have at the moment feel too tight when I put anything in the slant front pockets (including my hands). I’m sure what I need is more room somehow, but can’t quite figure out wear to add it.
I’d prefer a flat front design rather than pleats and I always make a straight leg trouser. Usually I’d be working in poly/wool or 100% wool, sometimes gaberdine, othertimes something with a bit more drape.
Any suggestions would be welcome!
