    This looks like a great pattern, I’m surprised it’s not inspired some conversation.

    Tatiana, yes, good luck. im going to check in to see how you’re getting on.

    i have a piece of light weight linen that I’m going to use for this pattern. I’m now going to figure out what size to cut.i have not had good results making trousers. I’ve made test pairs but not with linen
    Wish me luck.

    I just finished another pair in linen and I’m really happy with the result. One piece of advice I’d offer for linen trousers is that you press the rise seam allowances to one side and edgestitch the rise seam to strengthen it and to prevent “grinning” when the weave opens up because of stress on the seam. Does that makes sense? I can post a photo when it’s light again tomorrow if you need one.
