                  Love love love!

                  Fab design, great fit with minor adjustments needed, and the instructions are sooooo good! I learnt a lot from making these - thank you! :)

                  I loved making the Thea trousers and have since made a second pair with plans for a third!!! I graded the waist in to fit my sway back but apart from that the fit was perfect. The only thing I changed in my second pair was to narrow the width of the waistband as I found it a bit too deep for me. As always the instructions were so clear and easy to follow including the fly zip which can be a bit of a challenge!!!
                  Thanks Tilly and Team Buttons for another great pattern 👍

                  Best ever trouser pattern!

                  I have avoided making trousers as I have found getting a good fit impossible in the past. But Thea fits perfectly! Also great instructions as always with TATB.

                  Fantastic trousers pattern

                  I really enjoyed making these - as usual Tilly's instructions make difficult techniques so much simpler. I've made a zip fly a couple of times before but these instructions were far easier to follow.
                  I made the size that matched my measurements and they fit well with minimal adjustments, however I'll size up next time as I personally prefer a bit more room in the body (used to looser fits these days)

                  Great pair of trousers

                  Really pleased with my Thea trousers. I made them cropped with welt pockets and belt loops. The welt pockets were a new technique for me, but the instructions were clear and I'm pretty happy with my first attempt. The best thing about the pattern for me is the fit. I didn't need to make any adjustments and they fit perfectly!
