I am deeply in love with my sofa square pants, so was determined to make another pair as soon as possible. I bought some orange denim from FabScrap in Brooklyn a few years back with the express purpose of making a pair of orange jeans, so the time was right!
The minute I saw these trousers I knew they were for me. They are described as semi-fitted, gender neutral and inclusive with the characteristic of worker trousers with big pockets and the classic back belt detail.
You’ll also notice knee darts and these lovely diagonal fish eye darts in the back legs.
It’s rare that a pair of trousers fit me without a lot of faffing around, but I feel very comfortable in these, no inside leg bubbles or really baggy bottom, although they are intended to be loose. I am wearing them with my Hug Hoodie here.
I wore them for a Sundy lunch at my daughter-in-law’s family farm. Such a wonderful day.
When I made them I added some details: A large Stokx In the Wild label that I attached to a piece of selvedge and sewed on to the front side seam, and a piece of leather scrap that I had marbled, sewn to a back pocket.
I teamed them with a Pattern Union Felix jacket made some time ago using the reverse of the fabric. I’m so pleased with past Sue who did this as it doesn’t look too much with the square pants.
And lastly a rather sweet video of Miss G dancing to the Wiggles.
