I have been thinking about a Spring/Summer palette lately and I know I wont stick to the colours I choose for this post throughout the coming warmer months we are about to experience here in Melbourne, I know i’ll be mixing it up a little and it really depends on my mood as to what I might wear from day to day. I have however noticed that I’ve been looking at a lot of earthy tones whenever I’m in Spotlight or out and about thrifting.
This week we are looking at my funky pants, Vogue 8738, talk about getting the most out of a pattern, round three right here. I love the cut of these pants, I love the way they fall at the front and they’re so quick to make, the perfect project for me this week. I love the brown earthy tones in this Linen/Rayon fabric which I scored for $5. I love the fabrics texture, it really suits the earthy print. I love, I love, I love. There is not much to say in the way of construction, serged seams, centre back zip buttoned up on the interfaced waistband.
Here they are in action I thought i’d give these babies a whirl on the steps of The State Library of Victoria, there are always lots of school kids and office types sitting on the lawn and steps on their lunch breaks reading and studying and what not, maybe next time I can show you the inside of this beautiful building but for now I’m walking the grounds in my new Spring/Summer palette pants.Being Linen/Rayon my pants wrinkled in the car on the way, not a major issue and hardly worth mentioning really. I’m thinking a nice fitted waistcoat would sit well with this ensemble or even a light airy kimono top that drapes along side the drape of the pants, there is plenty I can team with these pants it’s just finding the right fabric print but for now, this ensemble suits me just fine for my day in the city.
Here they are once again in flight, we’re about to take off. Oh how I love thee. I’ll name these babies after Gossips- Dimestore Diamond from their Music for Men album, I’ve been singing it really badly annoying my little family with my off-key howling.
Happy happy sewing lovelies.
