Nina Lee Portobello Trousers Sewing Pattern
The Nina Lee Portobello Trousers Sewing Pattern creates simple, elegant, flattering high-waisted trousers. These trousers are a cinch to make. They also work in a variety of fabrics for year-round comfort. Make them in a lightweight wool and you’re work-ready in the winter. Alternatively, use linens and rayons to keep you cool and effortlessly chic in the summer. The wide-legged silhouette evokes the glamour of the ‘40s starlet. Alternatively, depending on the fabric used, it can reflect the relaxed vibe of a ‘70s bohemian. Pair with fine jumpers, soft blouses or cropped tops.
The trousers are constructed with front pleats and back darts. Importantly, they have a centre-back concealed zip to avoid any tricky fly construction. Furthermore, they feature the all-important in-seam pockets! This sewing pattern is suitable for confident beginners and upwards. You need to be able to insert a concealed zip, but otherwise everything is pleasingly simple.
