Merlot Ultimate trousers
The fabric is one I bought last week from Remnant Kings in Edinburgh. It's a polyester and does stretch quite a bit in all directions! There's not a scrap of natural fibre in it. But I LOVE the colour. I don't think they're for winter but they're fine for now.
I've been using my new overlocker so the inside seams are finished neatly. I still sewed the side seam containing the zip with my sewing machine. I think it's good to use the seam allowances as reinforcement for the zip. I also haven't worked out how to overlock only part of a seam, maybe it's obvious but not to me yet!
There's not much more to say about these trousers except I'm reasonably pleased with them and have a strong suspicion they'll grow on me the more I wear them!
