The Twisted Trousers

The Twisted Trousers

A few weeks ago, Laura from Craftstorming, put out a call for testers, for a new pattern, the Twisted Trousers by Titchy Threads. I was lucky enough to be one of those testers. I love the Rowan Tee pattern, so I was really excited for this one! Laura’s patterns are my favourite, so easy to follow and you can see the effort (and love) she has put into them, and also, she makes awesome clothes for boys!

The main feature on this pattern, is, of course, the twisted seams (so ingenious!). The side seams twist to the front and the inseams twist to the back of the trouser’s legs (whaaaaat??!). It really blew my mind when I finished sewing and saw the result! But there’s other features. It comes with slant front pockets, back pockets and even a little coin pocket. You can add piping to the seams and they’ll look even better! And also, you can make them reversible! So, so cool!

These were my second pair for the test. I used a lightweight fabric, with no stretch, in grey and blue. The fit is slim, but it allows a lot of movement (which is a big deal, for boys!). Because it was my first pattern test, I was afraid I couldn’t finish in time, or couldn’t find the right fabric, so I opted with not making them reversible, but the next one will definitely be.

These were the first version of the pattern. I used piping (made by me, for the first time!) and it works wonders (have I told you, how cool they are?).

You can see that the knees are already a bit worn out. That’s how much my son loves his Twisted Trousers! It’s all he wants to wear.

Thank you Laura, for a fun test and a new cool pattern!

      Obrigada Rita! Fiquei mesmo fã deste molde. É tão difícil arranjar moldes originais para rapazes (acho eu)!

    Estão demais, super giras. Também me inscrevi no teste por causa do meu rapaz, apesar de ter testado para a miúda, mal posso esperar para fazer umas para ele 🙂

      Obrigada Carla! Eu acho que é dos moldes mais originais que por aí andam. Agora tenho que fazer para o mais novo. 🙂

    Both these versions look fantastic. I love the how the two toned ones show off the twists and the yellow piping goes so well with the denim. Thanks so much for your help with testing.

      Thanks Laura! I really love this pattern. It’s so cool! Sometimes I feel a bit frustrated with seeing so many fun patterns for girls, but when I found you I knew I’d “struck gold”. Thanks again for the opportunity! 😀

    Eu fiquei tão triste quando não fui escolhida para este teste, andava à espera dele há que tempos. Mas já tenho o molde e assim que tiver um tempinho quero fazer um par também. Tenho adorado as versões que vão aparecendo! As tuas tb estão muito boas, principalmente a 1ª (2º teste)… gosto das tuas escolhas e como combinas os tecidos!
