This is my third (and brightest!) pair of Chi Town Chinos pants. To say I love this pattern by Alina Design Co would be an understatement! It’s my go-to for a perfect lower waist trouser style pant.Click here if you would like to continue reading
Welcome to the third and final installment of my Chi Town Chino shorts series. Its been quite hot here so these have been on steady rotation. I do love summer but I think I’m ready to pull out my button down shirts and trouser pants.. you? Keep reading for all the details on these short handmade shorts.
Welcome to Part 2 of my Chi town Chino party. If you missed part 1, you can visit last weeks here. This week’s version is another longer pair in linen. Only this time we are going a bit darker. These shorts are so light and comfy – perfect for this super hot weather we’ve been having. Keep reading for more details!
Get ready for a handmade shorts blast! For the next three weeks I will be sharing with you my three (yes three!) most recent makes – all of which are shorts. Basically I was looking for holes in my closet and found that I’d like to have some more non-denim shorts… because now that I’m over 30 I felt the need for some “grown up shorts” – if that’s even a thing. Keep reading to learn more about this first pair, a slightly longer crisp tan linen set.
I’m super pumped to debut my final Chi Town Chino Expansion Pack trousers. These pants are so dreamy and I’ve already won them multiple times since sewing them up. They fit all my requirements for a simple, tailored, easy to wear trouser style pant. Just a heads up: I covered all the details on fit adjustments along with a full pattern review in my muslin post, so this one is going to be mostly pictures!
Yeay pants! It’s been a while since I made a pair of pants, and I believe this is my first pair of pants with a lower waistband. My goal with this project was to find a basic pant pattern that I could use over and over again to make well fitting “lady trousers” as I like to call them. Slim leg, cropped at the ankle, non denim. I’m super pleased with these pants and this pattern. Bare with me because I have so much to cover with this pattern so it’s going to be a wordy post.
