SOI Ultimate trousers win!

Hi everyone,

I have been eying up the Sew Over It Ulitmate Trousers for a while now, especially after the lovely Rebecca of RedWSews made some gorgeous floral ones! But I always thought this style trouser wouldn’t suit me, and that I would have loads of fitting issues. 

But I decided that instead of just questioning it, to just jump in and sew them! 

I opted to use some cheaper fabric from Minerva Crafts just in case. It’s a light weight spot denim


I looked at the sizes of the Ultimate Trousers and opted for a size 12 as I have lost quite a bit of weight recently. 

The sewing of these trousers are so super quick! They don’t have pockets so they are just crouch, side seams, zip and facings/waistband (if you follow Lisa’s hack). 

As this was a wearable toile for me, I opted to make not changes. And they fit amazingly. I have taken them in at the centre and back seam to make them sit closer to my body. I just then tapered it in. 





I have to say, I do love how these trousers look with big my top tucked in and with it out! 



I will definitely be making another pair in my more expensive fabric!

I like the second pair I will also raise the waist line by 1 inch so they are sitting on my natural waist. 

Hope you all like them. I will be road testing them tomorrow! 

Love, Abigail x

  1. They look great! Love the photo of you pointing at your bum (which looks cracking). I really need to revisit the Ultimate Trousers – I gave up when I had fitting trouble.
