tried them on today but £69 and I'd need to hem them.
They were gorgeous,elasticated waist that was actually flattering and didn't look like pj's.

They weren't in the sale as they are a best seller apparently.

Next have some nice one.
About £25 each.
Not elasticated waist thoguh.
That sounds nasty.

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 13:37:31

they're much better than they sound

what size are you ggirl? i have a pair of white linen trousers from east, elasticated waist, v. good condition, size 16 - was going to ebay them when i get round to it.

Have to say, I have M&S ones too, and they are great. Cheap too, and I do tend to drift to the more expensive end of market in trousers, but these are fab

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 13:45:13

I am 14 -16 depending on shop but east comes up quite big doesn't it?
Ideally wanted dark colour as I have cream ones already.Also want them by monday as off to canada .Thanks for offer though.

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 13:46:37

Actually bossykate how much do you want for them,just thought I could dye them.

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 13:48:28

hobbs sizes are mahoosive,size 12 fitted me which nearly tempted me to buy them

bossykate Fri 29-Jun-07 13:48:42

yes, they are big for a size 16 - more like 16/18...

er, no idea how much i'd want...

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 13:50:41

ah well they'll be too big then,I have east linen skirt in 16 that's too big

bossykate Fri 29-Jun-07 14:03:04

bossykate Fri 29-Jun-07 17:31:47

<thinks> i got a great pair of linen trousers from new look last yr, really well cut and flattering... no idea if they have them this year - £15 iirc.

bossykate Fri 29-Jun-07 17:32:47

actually you could have those - they don't fit any more - must have shrunk in the wardrobe - they are 14/16 - but also white?

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 17:34:47

shall I just come round and steal your wardrobe lol.
I take it you're a skinny minny now

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 17:35:22

oops just "saw shrunk in the wash" sorry

bossykate Fri 29-Jun-07 17:38:12

skinny minny! if only [sigh] am larding it up big style - am blaming increasing girth on 13m without smoking which is a good thing of course.

bossykate Fri 29-Jun-07 17:39:35

haha you will see my than sylph-like figure doesn't prevent me donning the white linen trews as soon as the weather permits!

brimfull Fri 29-Jun-07 17:41:43

yeh,I gained when I gave up smoking-well done for giving up though,much better to be smoke free and healthy.
