|Barely wrinkled after a day at the office. The pants, not my face.|
Presenting my newest Pants of Perfection: Purple! These are the third pair I've made from Vogue 2128 and I'm still smitten with this terrific pants pattern. Normally I hate Vogue patterns as I find they unnecessarily complicate the sewing process but if you completely ignore the instructions for these pants, they are fabulous! Good old Isaac Mizrahi. That man can definitely design for women.
These beauties - pardon me whilst I toot my own horn - are made from purple chambray. Let's stop to ponder that: purple chambray. They are serious secret pajama pants. They are nice enough for the office but am seriously reveling in the comfort factor of these pants. Ninja Pants!
|I am my own PARACHUTE!|
I picked up the fabric for these lovelies from Fabricland when we were visiting Chris' parents. Chris always makes sure to factor in a trip to Fabricland for me. Considering this one was a former roller rink, you can imagine the sheer volume of floor space available for fabric, fabric, fabric! It was so big that I only looked in the wovens section - specifically for linen and cottons for summer Phryne Fisher sewing. I didn't even look in the knits or notions sections! Those are for next time. :) While I didn't find any linen that I liked, I did find large gingham in pink and yellow and, of course, this perfectly purple chambray.

Oh, man. Chambray and I are like best buds now. This stuff is so soft and lightweight and delicious to sew. I whipped these pants up over the weekend in about 2 hours. AND I was so clever with my pattern placement, I still have over 1 metre left. Woot! I used a 3\8" seam allowance and cheated a bit this time by using purchased purple bias tape as the waist ties. But, I don't care!
Perfect purple pants ready to promenade! With a parasol!
|OMG! Take the picture already, you weirdo! My face is killing me!|
