The Avid Seamstress patterns follow simple lines and classic styling for really wearable wardrobe builders. With a cute split hem and an easy to insert back zip (no fly). You can make the City trousers up really quickly. I love the fact that they sit quite high at the natural waist on me. This means that I can tuck in a top or even wear a slightly cropped top with out baring too much flesh. I also roped my mum in to make a pair, which she ended up loving!!
Both my mother and I made our City Trousers in patterned cotton sateen. I opted for the Rosa sateen available in navy or white and now back in stock on the website. I love the giant roses on this stretch cotton fabric, they are so dramatic yet easy to wear.
Mum used the Portia sateen. When I suggested it she was a little unsure but now she has made them up and she loves them, I can see why they look really great on her. She’s already got her second pair underway.
