Twenty years ago, I was very taken with a girl I saw wearing red velvet pants. I went out and bought some red velvet the next day (actually cheap red velveteen, because I didn't have much money then). Only I didn't have the confidence to make and wear red velvet pants. The velveteen sat in my stash for years and years and eventually I gave it away in one of my house moves.
Then a few years ago I saw this patterned red denim at EmmaOneSock and thought it would be a better way to fulfill my 20 year old vision. I used an old Vogue Alice and Olivia pattern that had been stashed and never used, V2812.
I still feel that red is a bit dramatic for my everyday, but I did wear these trousers to the pop-up Globe Theatre to watch Hamlet. I don't think you could over-do the drama for Hamlet :).
