It only took a flash for tracksuit bottoms to become a key item in the wardrobes of young and old alike. The Rufus trousers are super cool: they come with double welt pockets (just like the real thing) at the front and there are two unfinished patch pockets at the back. The trousers are made of a combination of sweatshirt fabric and cuff fabric. However, there is also a version in ribbed jersey that has been cut in different directions.

Fabric advice

Make the Rufus trousers in sweatshirt fabric, French Terry, Ponte Roma, ribbed jersey, etc. Cut the cuffs from rib-knit trim.
