More trousers

Here are my black cord trousers from Evadress 3322.  I originally graded them up a bit too much, so I took .5 inch off the side seams.  They fit perfectly in the waist but are a bit snug through the tummy.  I think I could let them out just a bit there and they’d be perfect.  I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m finished sewing trousers. I’m such a dress/skirt gal that trousers or any kind= casual and I just don’t feel casual in my cords with a tucked in blouse.  I think what I’d like to do is make a pair in denim and find a knit top pattern that looks vintage-y or add vintage elements to a basic knit top.  I hope this might give me a vintage casual look.

SWAP update: I know have 3 bottoms and 2 tops done.  Bottom #4 will be done tomorrow.  I have fabric for a white knit top and need fabric for another top.
