Robinson pants: comfy and chic (Ensemble Patterns)

3rd version of the Robinson pants, after the trial version with the wrong fabric and the version with flannel modifications. This is the final version, the one I will wear often, to go to work with and being comfortable (a major criterion for me) and chic!

I used a Pretty Mercerie khaki chino which is actually a 195 gsm cotton twill with 3% spandex and a black twill ribbon for the chopsticks on the sides.

Robinson trousers cut

Well, I’m not going to bother you again with the quality of the Robinson trousers pattern and its assembly booklet: if you want to know more, it’s here and there.

Definitely, these deep deep pockets are well positioned and do not bring any volume on the hips… so practical.

Finitions of the Robinson trousers

To finish the legs, I sewed again a faux cuff. It’s fast and easy to make and I think it’s classier than just a hem.

The small novelty on this version is the presence of “tuxedo style” ribbons on the sides of the legs. The pattern also offers explanations for sewing this pretty detail.

A twill ribbon sewn on each edge of the ribbon along the entire length do the trick. Which means you start by sewing the leg’s front and back together, then the ribbon, then you sew the legs.

The small percentage of spandex in the fabric brings more comfort to the movements. I recommend it !

For the inside of the Italian pockets, I used small remnants of a gorgeous Eglantine and Zoe’s viscose . It gives me a sensation of incredible luxury!

Speaking of pockets, on the last 2 versions, I didn’t sew the pocket facings. The Robinson pants’s pattern offers facings for each part of the pocket: the front pocket and the front side pocket.

The idea is to make the pockets in a light fabric and the facings in pants fabric to prevent the pocket to show from the outside. For my part, I zapped the facings to make the front side pocket in the pants fabric (this is the part that we see on the side – bottom on the diagram) and the front pocket with a light fabric (the hidden part – at the top on the diagram).

Pockets, the best way to destash your remnants!

Robinson pants 3rd version: the icing on the cake

This smart idea of embroidery has been waiting in my Pinterest boards for a long time and now, I’ve finally make it!

It is a straight stitch embroidery, nothing too fancy!

Review of the Robinson trousers

As for my other Robinson trousers… I’m not going to ramble, I’m very happy . I have a new classic in my closet, that can go out often and make me feel chic and comfy. I even made a little dance of joy (a Happy Feet move for Jazz Root specialists!).

I’m going to take a short break from Robinson now. Next, I think I will test the Bruges trousers by Orageuse… Stay tuned!

    Je valide aussi cette version kaki joliment rehaussé par ce bandeau noir.

    Je trouve sur la photo la ceinture élastiquée un peu large – Mais peut être porté et “en vrai” cela ne fait pas le même effet… mais beau travail une fois de plus et le bandeau “noir” fait chic
