There is very little sewing time for me at the moment. The new year started hectic again with work, which is not too bad. As I’m self-employed there always are periods with a lot of work and periods with less. And I’m happy that in this difficult time my business is doing well. As a consequence of all I do have business appointments more often, and I need a few more outfits for those occasions. Not too formal, but dressier than just jeans and top.
So: no serious sewing time but in need of new clothes, especially pants. I’ve been intending to make more pants, had bought all I needed for at least 3 and then the sewing mojo left me somewhere in December. It’s still not back, I’m uninspired and looking at my fabrics doesn’t even help. But finding a good fitting pair of pants in rtw is practically impossible, that’s why I started a pair of pants yesterday evening.
Tomorrow the waistband will be added and then only the hemming has to be done. A relative quick project for which I used the same pattern as the last pair of black pants.
The fabric is dark grey with a white pinstripe and some blue, as you see in the selvage of the fabric
Fly front zipper, some chalk is still visible in the picture. I can’t see any on the pants anymore.
For the pocket I used one of the drafts that came on the dvd of David Page Coffin’s book “Making trousers”. Of course I had to match the pinstripes.
And I received an e-mail announcing the Knip Mode February. America’s first lady has a worldwide influence on fashion! Knip Mode made patterns for this outfit.
