The Miller trousers are a relaxed and easy to wear trouser that comes with the option of an elasticated or tie waist. They are designed to sit high on your natural waist above your belly button. The silhouette is full around the hip with a pleat in the front leg for extra fullness and deep side pockets. There is a dart in the back waist for extra shaping. The leg tapers inwards towards the ankle at the hem creating a streamlined, slightly carrot shaped silhouette. The finished length is just at the ankle bone but they look great rolled up too.
Option A) Has an elasticated waist – It is the easier construction method of the two options and is suitable for a beginner.
Option B) Has a channel at the waist with ties and bound buttonholes at the front for the ties to pull through. Bound buttonholes are an advanced sewing technique and more suited to an intermediate sewer – however you could replace the bound buttonholes with regular machine stitched buttonholes for easier construction!
This pattern was designed especially for woven, medium to heavy weight fabrics like cotton and linen and would look great in some heavier fabrics like drill and canvas or a light weight denim. It would also make up well in some lighter fabrics that have a draped quality like wool crepe, viscose twill or double gauze. You could also use jersey or sweatshirting fabric for extra comfortable secret pajamas.
The pattern is suitable for an advanced beginner.
