My First MinvervaCrafts Blogger Network Post

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.

  1. 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!

    1. 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.
