In an interesting and mostly successful trifecta, I combined V8929, V1034 (OOP) and my custom pant pattern by Lynda Maynard, and made a pair of jeans in a beautiful red/black denim from Silhouette Patterns.
I need to change the waistband to a contoured one and take a few tucks in the back leg, but I'm pretty pleased with them. I am pairing then here with a TNT
B5954, a tunic in a pretty paisley in red, gray and black from Fabric.com.
I made the same tunic (can you tell I like it?) in a cozy sweater knit with polkadots from Marcy Tilton, this time without the cowl collar and with a contrasting neck binding.
Paddywack approves...AND matches!
I couldn't resist a long sweater jacket from Orvis in a black and gray houndstooth...
a division of Comfy.
So, that's what I've been up to! I'm off to Artistry in Fashion next weekend, to
see old friends and meet up with new ones, and, just maybe, do a little shopping...
