Fabric inspiration for Romero

Romero is a pair of sailor trousers (or shorts) so my first thought was to make them in navy or white gabardine to get a very classic pair of trousers. But it would look amazing with so many different fabrics and style! Here are some examples:

 

DENIM

1. Black denim – Merchant & Mills

2. Blue jeans – Atelier de la création

3. Dark blue denim – Amandine Cha

 

NAUTICAL

1. Blue linen – Cousette

2. White gabardine – Amandine Cha

3. Striped denim – Merchant & Mills

 

PLAYFUL

1. Mustard linen – Cousette

2. Blue print wax – Henry & Henriette

3. Red gabardine – Amandine cha

 

– You can get the Romero trousers pattern in printed copy or PDF in the shop. –

Zoom in: the Romero trousers

I’ve been dreaming of a pair of sailor trousers for quite some time now. I even made one of few years ago, using a pattern from Burda, and I really liked it. But some details were bugging me: there was a zipper behind the button closure and the pockets were closed by the buttons and therefore not usable.  The first thing I did when I started to design this pattern was to find a way to have only button closures and to have fully functional pockets. With Lucile, we tried different techniques and finally, we were quite happy with this result: 

Romero is a pair of sailor trousers, with a high waistline, fitted from the waist to the hips. There are two different lenghts: a short version for summer and cropped ankle length. This is THE trousers length this year and I have to say that I really love it: this is a great way to show pretty shoes and I find it very elegant and flattering. 

Romero is closed by buttons on the sides and waitband. We have made a video tutorial to walk you through the pockets/buttonband construction. The pockets are fully functional and nicely finished with french seams. 

In terms of fabric, we recommend you to use medium weight fabrics with some body such as denim, linen, gabardine, cotton twill, woolens or corduroy for a winter version. You’ll also need lining for the pockets (a great way to use scraps from leftover cotton for example) and some interfacing for the waistband and buttonbands. 

Don’t hesitate to choose pretty buttons for Romero. In matching colours or contarsting ones, they will be your trousers’ focus point!

The new summer patterns are here!

At last, the new patterns are here! It took time but I am so happy to share these two designs with you:

THE ROMERO TROUSERS

These are sailor trousers with button close on the sides. They are high-waisted, fitted at the waist and hips and then flare at the leg. Elegant but practical as well, they have pockets hidden inside the button closure. You can choose between two lengths: cropped ankle length for View A or shorts for View B.

THE VERA SHIRT

Vera Will be your summer’s best friend with its loose shape and laid-back style.  The classical notched collar is coupled with an asymmetrical hem, longer in the back, and rounded edges to give Vera a modern vibe. The back neckline is softly gathered and the short sleeves can be worn rolled-up thanks to the button tabs.

– You can find the Romero trousers and the Vera shirt in the shop in both printed and PDF versions. –
– Want both patterns? We have prepared a Romero & Vera pack for a special price! –

I’ll come back tomorrow with more details on each pattern…
