Hello, everyone,

Not a whole lot here to brag about, but here is a pair of linen trousers just completed.  For those who remember, I had forgotten to add a layer of cotton drill in the waistband to help support the suspender buttons, and I ended up unsewing half of the waistband lining to add it.

That part went pretty well, if a bit frustrating and time-consuming.  So, here it is.



Here it is with and without the matching linen vest.





I am pretty pleased with the results.  The trousers were drafted from Devere, only thing I will do next time is add some inlay material to the back seam, in case I need to add some ease.

Very snappy!  It fits well and you look comfortable in it too.

Well done. You're not alone in having to practice 1 Thimbleoneans 1  "As ye sew so shall ye rip".
The effort was worth it to have a fine new pair of linen trousers.
