This design was a combination of designs, the band / flames by Paramount Designs and the word "Wicked" by Adorable Ideas at These microfibre cropped trousers are amazingly easy to work on, once the inside leg seam is opened up. They also presented a challenge because, as so many clothes these days, they are not designed for women with a shape, and so required some fairly major alterations before the embroidery.
