Hey It's Autumn!
Even though the days are still warm the morning air is cool and fresh. In my quest to sew what I need and use good fabric I bought some black pure linen from the Fabric Store and I've run up the wide pants from V9067 Vogue Five Easy Pieces link to pattern.
What about Vogue's beautiful new website? I like it!
I pre washed and ironed the linen and cut out the pants. I'd already adjusted the pattern posted here The leg looks very wide on the envelope photo but it is actually a true straight leg and the width is not overwhelming, even on my not very tall body. I added the pockets from View E and used strip of leftover lining material turned to the inside and stitched to make a casing for 1" wide elastic rather than a self waistband. The loose style in linen makes for a good between season garment, already a favourite to dress up or down.
One question though, I might take the pants legs up a bit more, maybe just a centimetre. What do you think? The casual top is another Simplicity Cynthia Rowley top 1366 posted here in a double weave sweatshirt material from Spotlight. Both patterns are earning their keep!
Happy to have cooler weather!
