Non-loud trousers…

I seem to have made a name over the last year for making loud golf trousers for Mr N, well these aren’t loud!

Mr N needed more everyday trousers, as he’d kind of worn out his other RTW pairs.

I got this fabric from The Fabric Warehouse back in August (I think). It’s black bull denim. The fabric is thick, but I actually really enjoyed sewing it. I only broke one needle too!

The pattern is the usual pattern I’ve used to make the loud golf trousers, Vogue 8719.

V8719, Men's Jacket and Pants 
I made my normal changes. Graded out a bit for the waist, I changed the in seam side pockets to slash pockets using the pattern pieces I’ve drafted myself. I also left the flaps off the back pockets and made those pockets larger so that Mr N’s wallet fits! A man needs room for his wallet! 🙂

Since the denim is so thick, I decided to use a cotton to line the pockets and the waistband. I thought this with the ties on would be fun, not that you can see the pattern much on the waistband or inside the pockets. To contrast with that fabric I used beige top-stitching thread to attach the back pockets and along the top of the pockets.

There’s not really much more to say about these. I made these as a Christmas present for Mr N so he had no idea what I was going to do. They are slightly long in the leg, so I think I’ll have to take them up a bit, but otherwise he’s definitely happy with his new everyday trousers/jeans.

The details…
Fabric:  Black bull denim from the Fabric Warehouse for the main trousers, tie print quilting cotton for the pocket and waistband lining from Made Marion
Notions:  Thread (everyday sewing and top-stitching), interfacing, metal jeans zip and a button for the waistband

Pattern:  Vogue 8719 view B
First worn:  When we went on holiday at New Year
Changes made:  Graded out the waistband, created slash pockets for the front (self-drafted pattern pieces) and enlarged the back pockets.
Another one/Recommend?  I certainly recommend the pattern, this is the fifth time I’ve made it up now. I’m getting quite an expert at fly zips now 🙂

So I’m a bit late to the party, but I think these count towards the Monthly Stitch Denim month!
