The Fabric - poly / viscose blend from The Fabric Store
When I was half-way through construction, I noticed this page in Vogue Australia's February edition. It looks as though Marni and Bianca Spender have similar pants in their line-up, so if you have been lusting after such a style, it is probably worth getting your hands on this edition of Patrones.
I wan thinking that they would be summer shorts, but they seem to pair better with more autumnal tops. In the above photos, I paired them with an unblogged top from last year - kill 2 birds with one blog post, so to speak. The pattern is the Sloppy Josephine Tee by Papercut Patterns. It was a bit of a disaster. I made a medium, according to the size chart. It was unwearable. I took in all the seams., which make it more like a small. The neckline is still so low and wide that it is indecent. I need to layer a top underneath, but I don't have one the right colour (it is on the list). It does look like the photo on the front of the pattern, so I should not have been too surprised - I had just seen other blog versions which seemed to fit okay. I made another version of this pattern, using a wide neckband, which I do wear, but the proportions look off. I haven't given up on this pattern yet though - perhaps version 3 will be just right.
