Make the effortlessly cool Carrie Trousers from Sew Over It with my 1 day sewing workshop!
"Inspired by the effortless summer wardrobe of Carrie Bradshaw, the Carrie Trousers are perfect everyday trousers. Floaty and cool, they’re great with flats for a day on the beach or a Sunday stroll through the park, though they work just as well dressed up with heels for an evening out for more of a glamorous look.
The Carrie Trousers are loose-fitting through the leg, slightly tapering towards the ankle. With no need for any tricky closures, they have a flattering flat-fronted, elasticated-back waistband with pretty pleats at the front. Practical and ideal for Summer, the Carrie Trousers are mid-rise and feature ever-useful slanted pockets at the side seams. Easy to fit, they are a great starting point for newbie trouser sewers who want to get to grips with construction." - Text from sewoverit.co.uk
