Jutland pants from Thread Theory

Jutland pants from Thread Theory

Hi there. I haven’t been blogging much lately, but that doesn’t mean that I haven’t been sewing. I have quite a backlog of garments I want to show you. And I’ll start with the newest garment I made: a pair of pants for my husbands birthday: Jutland pants from Thread Theory. I have previous made him a pair of Jutland pants, -my first sewing project in 2015, and still unblogged (shame on me). That time I made version 1 and as it was winter, I lined them as well. They turned out ok, but are far from his favourite pants.   The pattern This time he wanted me to make V2 view, but after we discussed it a bit, we decided that I wouldn’t use the actual Jutland pants pattern pieces, but that of Burda 7022 instead. The reason being that these were a much better fit, and it meant that I didn’t have to use a lot of time adjusting the fit of the Jutland. Of course that would have been fine too, but would take longer. And I really wanted to make this a quick project – or as quick you can when you are talking about trousers with lots of pockets and reinforcements. They were for his birthday after all.

Burda 7022 Mens trousers

Burda 7022 Mens trousers

Today I want to show you the Bunda 7022 trousers I made for my man last year. It the brown trousers you could see in the posting about this wool vest last week. The fabric A few years ago (or a little more than that) my mother in law came back from a holiday with a few fabrics for me. One of them was a beautiful wool-cashmere fabric in dark brown. My husband wanted me to make him a pair of trousers with it. It has taken me a while, but they are finally finished. The Burda 7022 pattern He wanted classic suit style pair of trousers. The first pattern I found was the Vogue 2836 mens suit pattern.I started tracing the pattern of the trousers to make the muslin, but got discouraged by all the pattern pieces. I lay the project dead for a while. This was about 6 years ago. 😛 Then last year I found a new pattern that seemed a lot more promising. It was the Burda 7022. It too is a suit style trouser, but a bit more modern. The style has a single pleat in front, a double welt pocket at the backside and two different options for leg width. My man chose option A. The making. This time I managed to stay inspired, and finished the trousers in a week or two. I don’t really have all that much sewing time each day . I made a muslin to check the fit. There were very few adjustments I had to do. The size 48[…]
