I made a long leg version of my wool-y shorts to see how this pattern turns out. I loved the shorts so much and wide legged trousers are my favourite trouser style, so I went ahead and made them up in a salt and pepper suiting material and I must say I am in love. They were straight forward to make. Well, just like the shorts just longer.....and no cuffs.
I added buttons to the waistband again so I can wear them with my vintage braces and must say I feel a little Buster Keaton, wearing them. To me, that's a good thing. I can see more versions in the future.
There was a little bit of fabric left over from the trousers which I turned into a matching beret. I am getting prepared to brave the colder temperatures coming.
And a picture with kitty for good measure.
She hates being picked up, can you tell?
Anyone else sewing for the colder days in the near future? If yes, what are you making?
