JOPLIN FLARES | MADE

PATTERN: Self drafted flares

FABRIC: Corduroy, Merchant & Mills

These flares started as one of many sketches I had made. Then I watched Girlboss on Netflix and could not resist the idea of making these up in a red cord. I also added a lace up 'fly' and, what you cannot see in the pictures, some design lines on the thighs.

I used the Aldrich Metric Pattern Cutting for Women's Wear book to draft the trouser block which I then flared out. I then cut from the mid waist to just above the knee on the back and front. The closure on the front is not as well executed as I would have liked but in theory these are exactly how I imagined!
