straight leg trousers

The Trousers were developed by adapting the yoke opening feature of The Cowl Skirt and The Culottes to a narrow waistband.  The successful application of this adjustable waist closure mechanism to a pair of trousers, demonstrates it is suitable to a range of lower body garments, both loose and fitted to the legs. A style variation with a deep yoke and side pleat was developed from the basic straight leg style.

In addition to the allowance for alteration through the centre back seam, areas of wear are reinforced with shields: the seat and the hem of the back leg.
