My love affair with New Look 6459 is well documented on this blog and now it continues.
This time I lengthened the pattern into wide leg trousers. These are not a new make, I think they are a few months old and have been on regular rotation for work.
While I love skinny jeans and trousers, I really want to wear different styles. I’ve played with a few new patterns – mostly Style Arc – but have come to the conclusion that for me, trousers need to be either skinny or wide leg and nothing in between.
These were made with a nice waffle-like, pant weight fabric from Pitt Trading.
Also here I have some made in a stretch denim, which I love less, but maybe they will grow on me.
Also pictured is a new forest green ponte top that I made especially to go with these trousers – they do need a certain style of top to wear with them – mostly a more fitted style or cropped as they are high waist. Fabric also from Pitt Trading.
