The wait is over, both for me to share my first make made in collaboration with MinervaCrafts for their famous #MCBN team and for you because now you can read all about how I got along with my first project.
It was hard for me to decide what to make, I wanted to go big and bold. I might have not succeeded in going big, but I definitely went bold.
Pattern: Flint trouser by Megan Nielsen Patterns
Fabric: 2 m red gaberchino
Notions: 1 matching button, interfacing for the waistband.
Sewing time: about 4 hours including tracing the pattern pieces.
Modifications: lengthened trouser length by 10 cm.

These trousers looks fab on you! A great first post for MCBN, congratulations 😂
I love the color combination of the pants and the top. Lovely outfit.
Thank you 😊!
I love the color of these trousers! Definitely a statement piece that will work well in anyone’s wardrobe. I’ve been dreaming up a similar pant for myself & I like the silhouette of these… and the fact that they’re high-waisted. Great work, it looks wonderful on you!
Thanks! Being petite never thought this style would suit me. Glad I tried it 🙂
Congratulations on you first post for MCBN
I have massive trouser envy with these. They look so good on you
Thanks! But you can’t have my pair. Make your own
Lovely trousers! I find the idea of sewing trousers very intimidating and you did a wonderful job!
Thank you. You should not be intimidated by trousers. They are not that difficult. Flint trousers are super easy and the
Instructions that come with the patterns as well as the sewalong on Megan Nielsen’s blog is very comprehensive.
You’re welcome! I’ll try not to be so intimidated. 🙂 The more I see other people pulling it off really well – like you – the more comfortable I get with the idea!
[…] Abakan store. I knew that some of it would make a pair of Flint trousers ( here are the links for my first and second pairs) from Megan Nielsen Patterns and hope there will be enough to make another woven […]
