New Look 6459 – wide leg trousers x 2

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.

Apologies for the brief post, but I’m hoping that brief posts might mean more blogging.


The layered look, as worn to work 🙂
