New environments can give you new inspiration. We were in Italy on holiday and it was hot, very hot and there were many mosquitoes in the evening. So a thin pair of trousers would be ideal for our holiday. In the stores here in Italy I saw many trousers made of 100% viscose. This type of fabric would be ideal, nice and flowy and very thin. Of course I could not find any of these type of trousers in kid sizes, only in women sizes. So when I spotted a pair of trousers on sale I bought it and from this pair of trousers I sewed two trousers for both girls.
For both girls I traced a pair of trousers that fitted well. I wanted to use as much as possible from the fabric I had so I left the side seam as it was and I also used the elastic waist in the trousers. As the trousers was a size small, in Italy that means, very small, I only had to trim the sides slightly to get to the right size.
