Pattern includes instructions for decorative cutwork embroidery (broderie Anglaise).
Suggested fabrics: Medium to heavyweight cottons and blends, linen, silk, lightweight wool, thin wale corduroy or velvet.

Finally, a modern trouser pattern designed for curvy hips, fuller thighs and a narrow waist! The Thurlow Trousers sit below the waistline, with a slightly flared leg. Pockets in front are subtle slash pockets that won't add bulk to the hips.
Pattern includes a cute pair of cuffed shorts as well as full-length pants. Wear the shorts cuffed or un-cuffed, with an optional grosgrain ribbon belt.
A great feature of this pattern is the centre back extension. Both trousers and shorts have extra-wide seam allowances at centre back so they're easily altered for a custom fit at the waist. Try on your pants when they're partially sewn, and fit them to your body!
Sizes: 0–16 (all sizes are included in one pattern!). Sizing is proportioned for a pear-shaped figure: smaller bust and waist, larger hips.
