No. 7 Vanløse - An even higher waist

I love to put on high waisted trousers; I think they are classy and very flattering on most women. I like the way they hug where the natural waist is and the fact that I can hide my bum when I pick up my daughter or bend over. The Vanløse trousers have a high waist, but I have made a version with an even higher waist. I have removed the facing and replaced it with a shaped waistband instead.

I have made an extra pattern piece for the waistband, and you can print it here.

Cutting Fabric:

On each pattern piece you will find a capital letter. On the cutting layout plan, you will find the same capital letters so that you can easily see which pattern pieces to use for the view you have chosen.


OBS! Klip også mønsterdel X & Y i vlieseline en gang.
