I was loving those high-waisted trousers I made a few weeks ago so much I had no choice but to make another pair. This time I used a brown and ivory herringbone silk/wool blend (which was actually sort of hard to work with - I was surprised!). And then I wore it with black and white stripes. Which I'm still not completely sure was the right decision. Too many neutrals in too many patterns?
For these pants, to make them a little different than the last ones, I made the waistband about 1/2" thinner and I didn't cuff the bottom (also because I didn't have enough fabric to make the pants long enough to make a cuff at the bottom - it takes like 6 extra inches!).
|Ouch,eyeballs! Excessive varying stripes!|
Today is the last day to enter the giveaway at Sam and I are doing, so don't forget!
