The Eve Trouser is cropped, with a slightly tapered leg and optional turn ups. It’s an easy garment to make, fitting neatly at the waist and over the hips with a simple side zip and two back pockets. Choose to make pleats or darts into the waist seam. All seam allowances are 1.5cm unless stated otherwise and are included in the pattern. This is a multi-size paper pattern in an envelope, including sizes 6 – 18.
The Eve Trousers are suitable for a wide range of fabrics so make it your own. Medium woven fabrics such as cotton twill, denim, corduroy, light to medium weight woolens, linen or tencel. Picking a thicker fabric like a canvas will give you a more structured shape.
#WHO MADE ME?
There are some brands that inspire creativity. Merchant & Mills is top on our list. Their purpose is to make (or more precisely get YOU to make) clothes, not fashion. In curating and designing patterns, fabrics and tools, they make our fingers itch to start deisgning, cutting and making. The two creators behind the brand are Carolyn Denham, who has a degree in Fashion design and has worked in New York, Italy and London and Roderick Field, a respected photographer with works in the National Portrait Gallery and keeps the look of the brand through his gorgeous product photos.
