The new and improved Skinny Barb

Yes, I did it again, this time skinnier and with back pockets.

With reversed half red – half blue legs (totally unintentional)

They now have ankle zips

And top-stitched elastic waistband

I’m thinking of making a matching jacket. I need to build my jacket making skills and wouldn’t it be fun to have a crazy floral print two piece?

  2. I love these so much! Do you remember how much you narrowed on each leg? I would love to make these, and my Barb pattern fits me pretty well at this point.
    Thanks!

  3. LOVE them! I find it difficult to get trousers to fit me perfectly but I’m terrified of making them. After seeing these beauties though, I might just have to give it a go. Also crazy floral two piece? Slow hand clap. Fab idea.

    • Hey Suz, you could try to make this pair. It’s just 3 pieces, no pockets, no front fly, perfect for making alterations🙂

  4. These pants look adorable.
    I also downloaded the size 10 of the pattern based on my current measurements. Did you use size 8 for this pair or just altered the size 10 ?

    • Hey Claudia! I used size 10 for both, but for the second pair, which had more stretch, I took in a bit at the sides when sewing. I think I cut them with 1cm seam allowances, but sewn with 1,5. I think it;s best to start big, you can always make them smaller, but not the other way around🙂

What do you think?
