Patterned Trouser Temptation
|A walk on the wild side|
It's well known that I am a very classic and conservative dresser. I do not do trends. I can't even bring myself to make a red skirt, even though I have the fabric in my stash.
So why have I succumbed to the patterned pants trend?
I somehow like this tribal look meets kaleidoscope print. It's really a bit bright for me, but I am going to throw caution to the wind and live dangerously for once in my life.
I don't think I would make this fabric up in a tailored trouser, but I think I am rather tempted by the Cut and Sew and Go in One Hour approach, after months of making tedious trouser muslins. A little bit of instant gratification is called for.
And any fitting imperfections are going to be lost in the busyness of this print...
I'm going to use a McCall's legging pattern again, cut larger so that these become slim fitting pants. The front and back are in one piece - which will work well with this very busy pattern.
Happy sewing all:)
