Classic Sew Select Box - October 2023


Meet the Meriam Trousers: woven pants you'll actually enjoy wearing! Classic trousers can be pretty uncomfortable if your waist spreads when you sit downÑand whose doesn't? But thanks to an innovative flex waistband, the Meriam Trousers keep you comfortable while standing or sitting, without compromising on style and sophistication! The Meriam has the classic details you love in a trouser: a zip fly with a hidden closure, front slash pockets, straight legs, and optional back welt pockets. But best of all, you'll get a fabulously comfortable fit with a flex waistband that gently expands by 3-4" as you sit down, plus the option of a full bum adjustment piece, already done for you.

Favorite Winter Trousers

This box arrived just in time for the cooler weather. The trousers by The Assembly Line are great. I was a bit skeptical of the double pleats on the front and double darts in the back. Once I was done, I felt like I stepped out from the 1920s or 30s. I'm 5'10" and normally need to find jeans/pants with a 34" inseam. I was very surprised at the length of these trousers since their website state that they draft their patterns for a height of 5'6". I decided not to add any extra length and they ended up being just right -- with a narrow hem -- when I wear flats. I would definitely add an inch or two next time to widen the hem and make them a little longer to wear with any type of small heel.

I also really loved the buttons that were included in the box.

I am already planning on making another pair of these trousers for this winter.

Good, but...

I love the fabric, pattern and notions, but the pattern calls for interfacing which was not included. I thought it would be and had to make a run to the fabric store.
