Ha! I was finally able to get my Navy Pants of Perfection photographed! I have borrowed a large selection of Phryne Fisher books from the library and reading is a guaranteed way to get me to sit still - or stand still, in this case.
As with my pink pants, I used Vogue 2128 and they took two episodes of Miss Fisher's Murder Mysteries to make. A quick sew, in my opinion. The fabric is a lovely linen/rayon blend from Fabric.com and, like my pink pants, it drapes beautifully. They are also blissfully cool in the 24C weather we have been having. If summer could stay at these temperatures, I would be delighted indeed!
This is a typical casual look for me. I paired the Pants of Wonder with one of my favourite thrifted tees and added the rose at my hip for a bit of pizazz. I've noticed whilst researching 1920's fashion that hip detailing was a design feature for both dresses and separates alike.
The rose also doubles as a hair flower - I just clipped it to to the waistband. I hope to have several versions of these gorgeous trousers by summer's end!
Next on the sewing agenda is a 1920's version of the Staple Dress. Temperatures are threatening to soar this week and I'll need some cool, Miss Fisher-esque dresses to ride the heat wave. Besides, I would never give up dresses completely and both the Washi Dress, as well as the Staple Dress, are high on my sewing list.
