First a thank you for all your nice comments about the wrap top. I'm really happy with that one, and never realised there was a pattern for it at all. There's nothing to keep it in place, except for a knot sometimes in the fabric itself. And I'll let you know my favorite way of wearing it sometime.
Finally I've hemmed the pants, they took me quite a while to complete, which was partly due to the piping, partly due to lack of time to sew. Here it is, together with BWOF #118 from the February issue. Both projects from my to do list I made earlier.
On the pants I omitted the belt loops. I already have my doubts about the waist tabs, perhaps there's too much going on. And a belt is not to be worn in any case with this design.
I lined it with white lining fabric, and cut the inner pocket from white cotton, to make sure the lines of the fabric wouldn't see through. Even with the white lining you can see the pockets through the fabric. But alas, that's often the case with white fabric.
The fabric is a very good quality linen, which originally was sold for over 20 euro/meter, and which I bought at a closing down sale for 5 euro/meter.
The top (sorry, the pictures are no clearer than this, black fabric!) is a nice variation on a t-shirt. The instructions in Dutch were as incrompehensible as the English apparently, if I judge the reviews of this one. For me the review and order of construction Kay Y mentioned in her review, saved me from making a wadder. I'm absolutely sure that I wouldn't have found out how to do this. After reading the instructions in the magazine, I went to the computer to find Kay's review, which I knew had more information. I printed her instructions and took them to my sewing machine. Followed this step by step, and it came together smoothly. So Kay, if you read this, THANK YOU.
A few more pictures to conclude. And the back... fabric behaving differently, sigh.
