Can I cheat on this fashion? What do you think?
This is a photo in the June Vogue Australia.
I was wondering if this is a fashion that I could wear, so I got out the pants from a suit I made, maybe in 1997, and rolled up the cuffs, to have a look. The details are washed out in the photo, but they are high-waisted, with pleats and tapered legs (yes, really, and I still have them). The waistcoat is a muslin that I started working on last weekend. I think I like the pants, but now I am wondering, do I have to make a new pair, or can I just adapt this pair? The fabric is a beautiful wool, from back in the days when Lincraft sold beautiful wool.
I'm not sure what fabric to use for the waistcoat. Have I mentioned that I am stash sewing? It hasn't been too bad, because I bought a heap of fabric in January and my fabric diet only started in February. I like having a stash to shop, but I do find it overwhelming at times. Sometimes I think stash sewing promotes creativity, at other times , I just want to go and buy the perfenct fabric for a project.
Anyway, back to the pants...if the fashion comes around again, can you wear it again?
