It’s raining outside…
…and I’m at home,
with a miserable cold.
The perfect excuse for some quality time indoors!
|I had to show you this one – I first tried them on backwards!!
The funny thing is they almost fit me that way!
And yes, I know, lunchtime in my pyjamas…
|The front at the front, is much better|
|Warning – more bad mirror shots coming up!|
Version #1 – A Boring Basic Block Trouser
|Cut straight off the block
These are about as close fitting as I can get with a non-stretch woven
|I altered the back thigh as it was a bit droopy
They are a bit naff though, I might menswear-ify these to make them more interesting
– pockets, fly front, leg creases – that sort of thing
|Version #2 – Tight Stretchy Capris
|I attempted Capris in this fabric earlier in the year but they were a flop. It is one of those strange hi-tec fabrics that unless it is tight it goes ‘balloony’ if you know what I mean!
Today I unpicked them and recut them using my new block
|And made ’em tight!|
Version #3 – Stretch Wool/Lurex Trouser, almost
|I finally plucked up the courage to cut into my beloved wool /lurex from Global.
You know, the one that mysteriously appeared in my stash recently…I don’t remember a thing about that.
|They’re looking promising, and are very cosy!
I did the pockets and front fly, then that miserable cold began to take it’s toll…
All in all, a perfect day in my
|A bit like the cat 😉|
