CLOVER SHORTS BY WILLOW AND CO. (TURNED INTO TROUSERS BY DOGUINCHO!)

My kids school doesn’t have a uniform so, to make my mornings easier, I kind of decided denim trousers/shorts/skirts would be their informal uniform. The only problem is that it is so hard to find loose fitting trousers in our stores. Shinnies are all I can buy… So I decided to make a pair of Clover Denim Trousers Teresa could wear to school and be cool and comfortable ate the same time. Here they are!
The Pattern: Clover Shorts by Hayley from Welcome to the Mouse House for Willow and Co. Besides turning the shorts into trousers by lengthening them, I’ve omitted a couple of nice features from this wonderful pattern because I wanted a super fast project to sew. So I kept the side pockets but left behind the belt and its loops. I love the fitting of these trousers! I think they are really unique!
Fabric / Notions: The fabric is light weight denim from an ugly women’s dress I bought at my local street market for 3 Euros. It is really soft and drapes nicely and that’s why I bought such and hideous peace of garment (sorry, but I forgot to take “before” photos). I’ve sew everything with contrasting white thread and I am glad I did it because it adds some texture to the plain and monochromatic denim fabric.

So here are a couple of last minute photos from my last sewing project just in time to share with Willow and Co. Back to School Contest!


And, good news, these trousers look great with the Aster Cardigan I made last week. I think Teresa already has a proper first day of school outfit!
