I am in seriously in love with the color RED right now! It's just something about that color that just makes you feel sexy, right, or maybe that's just me lol! I have been the seeing wide leg trousers popping up everywhere, and I do mean everywhere.. So, if everyone jumps does that mean I have to jump? Well, certainly not! However, that does mean I have to make me a pair of RED wide leg trousers lol!
So, I did like so many of you "Divas seamstress extraordinaries", and scoured the Internet for a pattern that would feed my need for a pair of RED wide leg trousers...Of course, I didn't have to search long, as Vogue, which tends to be on curve with what's trendy, already releaseda pattern for wide leg trousers, and it just so happens to have a pair of RED wide leg trousers on the envelope art! Have a look see:
I made up a quick muslin last week and realized that I needed to lengthen the crotch length. I also needed to add a little in the tummy area, as well adding length to the pants hem.. I want to be limitless in the options of heels that I can wear with these trousers.... After doing the alterations to the pattern, I started sewing the real pants, and I must say for my first pair of pants they are coming along great..I ran into one problem, which took away an entire sewing session, which I will talk about once I review the pants..I don't even want to relive that monstrosity lol!
Hopefully, I can get done with the trousers by this weekend! I just need to sew on the hook and eyes and slip stitch the yoke facing down, but I am wondering if I could just stitch in the ditch hmmm....Anything to get out a little hand sewing lol.. Oh yeah, and I need to hem the pants, but these are only small task...Alright, lovelies enjoy your day! Be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
