This is the first pair of trousers I've ever made! My Uncle and Aunty kindly brought me back the fabric from their last trip to South Africa. It's a really cool print with threads of gold interweaved.
To make them I used a free pattern that I got with Sew Magazine: Simplicity K1699, as a guide. I cropped them by shortening the pattern a little, and dded a couple of inches to the top to make them high-waisted.
This is also the first time I've sewn a lapped zipper (shown in the last two pictures) I've always been a little afraid of them because they were seemingly complicated.. Not the case! I'll definitely be using the technique more for future projects.
