Capri Trousers

Stash Smash – Capri Trousers

Capri Trousers

I bought this cotton sateen in June after I’d come back from holiday with the ideal pattern for a pair of Capri trousers in a newly acquired sewing magazine. But lots of things jumped ahead of the trousers including The Monthly Stitch’s IPM and the fabric just got stuck under my ever present ironing pile.

I suppose the fabric hasn’t been in my stash for a particularly long time; I can pinpoint fabrics that have been languishing for years in there. It isn’t particularly precious either as I think the fabric is still in stock at Fabric Land. I’m hoping I’m going to have time for a higher scorer next time….

More details on the sewing magazine here and the construction here.

One thought on “Stash Smash – Capri Trousers

  1. Really nice capris, terrific fit. Shame the pattern book is in Italian otherwise I’d track it down. Definitely worth finishing – you’ve inspired me for Novembers Pants Challenge. And I say book that vacation in May!
