Upcycled butcher trousers with appliqués
Fashion studios can quickly get swamped with textile samples, vintage pieces, old prototypes that haven't been approved...it's not a pretty sight. And considering how fast we're sending clothing to landfill on a global scale makes it even more urgent that we find a creative solution to give old clothes a second chance.
These are 3 somewhat similar trousers I found in a vintage shop: they were probably butcher trousers and had the simplest construction possible - which meant a very unflattering pattern that I adjusted, but also a cute/weird fastening system with buttons and a drawstring that I kept.
Sizes S and M have front pleats and welt pockets; size L has the original patch pockets on the front.
All with adjustable waistband with elastic on the back, random appliqués using printed patches from a prototype that I couldn't produce for this collection.
Only one piece for each size - see details and measurements on the gallery.
