The Comeback!

So here we go my big combeback!

I must say these were a pretty good pattern to get back into the ring with, they were simple and didn't take very long at all. I think I maybe spent about three hours sewing them and then a hour or two hand sewing the facing down whilst watching Fight Club.

I debated making a muslin, but it seemed like too much messing around so I used this red gabardine that I had lots of so I could do them again if I had to. 

They fit OK, although they give me a little bit of a wedgie, so i adjusted that on the pattern so next time they should be perfect.

Wanna know what else I love about these? They use less than a meter of fabric and the pocket lining and facing can be cut out of a fat quater. I think these are going to be a brilliant stash buster!

Now lets just hope for some sunshine so I can wear them.

These are so, so cute! I desperately want a pair of these-- I even bought a lovely red twill to make them-- but the pattern doesn't come close to fitting me, and I can't get it adjusted properly. :(
