Lutterloh Pants

Spent Monday with Sonja from Lutterloh Patterns and drafted a collared shirt and a pair of trousers. Had a great day and learned heaps. Met some lovely ladies too.
I have even been able to sew up a pair of pants and wear them out last night.

The original pattern for drafting

Pants ready to go. I decided to shorten the waist as I prefer pants to sit below my belly button. This made them a bit too loose so I added a granny style elastic to the back as I was in a hurry to wear them out. I made them from a stretch woven cotton in my stash and they are so comfortable. I also moved the zipper to the side.

Wow. I love the way this lady thinks...

 Oversized buttonholes using your 1-step buttonhole.
 What a great idea.
