Greetings from the Island Of Love Confused

Whilst I am over here, I have found a tame Turkish tailor who apart from running me up a three piece suit, I am contemplating having him sew me a set of breeches.

Is there a generic pattern, or does anyone have a design I could copy please?

Hope the season is going well.

Danny

I've had a gander online for some patterns but to no avail.

Do you have a pair of breeches with you? If so, your tailor could most likely take a pattern from them.

Otherwise we do have a pattern but our scanner isn't currently working...

Thanks Gareth, my breeches were not amongst my deployment list, I could probably hand draw a diagram and I am sure the local tailour may be able to construct something from that. It would be rude not to for 30 Turkish Lira (about a tenner), plus my other ones would probably fit the pilsbury dough boy.

I am in no rush, I have another 5 months here bracing the sunshine and boredom. Evil or Very Mad
