Scary September Challenge
As you can see, I took a photo of it in March, and had grand plans to make a pair of trousers with it - I had seen a patterned pair in a shop, paired with a navy trench coat, and I liked the idea. So I rushed to Spotlight and they had some blue patterned twill - on special for $5-00 a metre. So I bought two metres.
Then I changed my mind. I was not sure that I could wear such obviously patterned pants. So I stashed the fabric.
Then I saw a blazer in a fashion magazine in a similar fabric. So I pulled it out again. I thought long and hard about a blazer but then I was not sure that I would wear such an obviously patterned blazer. So I stashed the fabric again.
Then the fabric kept glaring at me. You know how some fabric does that. You bought me, and now you won't use me. Glare and Sulk, from the fabric.
I pulled it out again. Blazer or Pants? Trousers or Blazer? Jacket or Pants?
So in the end, I thought I better just do something. And one of the somethings I have been trying to solve this year is find the perfect pants pattern. So I thought I would use this scary fabric and hope to make the perfect pair of stretch pants.
Now that's something to be scared of. So I thought I better step off with BeaJay and her friends, and join Scary September. Find out more at: www.ontheroadtosewwear.blogspot.com
