The first pair of loud golf trousers were loved so much at a second pair was soon commissioned!
These were actually made in time for The Monthly Stitch Smarty Pants month of February, but I’ve been a bit delayed a) photographing them and b) writing up the post.
There isn’t really that much to say about these. I used the same pattern as before, Vogue 8719
I cut a triangle from the top side seam of the front pieces
And used this as a template for the remainder of the pocket. The pattern pockets start at waist level, so I made pouch larger and cut this twice, one without the triangle template, and one with.
So the slash pockets were born. These are a complete success. I am really pleased how these have worked. I also made the back pockets slightly deeper with no flap over the top. They needed to be deeper, Mr N’s wallet kept falling out… 🙂
The topstitching was all done with a green thread, the same colour as the green in the pattern, however, this isn’t visible with so much loud pattern!
Pattern: Vogue 8719
First worn: For the Holland Cup trials at Karori Golf Club February 2014
Changes made: Altered the inseam side pockets to be slash pockets and also enlarged the back pockets.
Another one? Mm, I have a feeling this customer will never be satisfied! More, more! I would like to make some more in sturdier fabric, more as everyday trousers. The slash pockets were a complete success, as were the larger back pockets.
Not many photos on this one and Mr N doesn’t look that happy in this photo! I promise you he is happy. I think he was itching to get to the club and having photos taken was delaying him! 🙂
