It’s our 3rd wedding anniversary today, so we nipped out for a lovely lunch at Loch Fyne. We dressed up a bit in honour of the occasion, and the missus donned a beautifully co-ordinating outfit comprising a chocolate silk-satin shirt [which used to be mine but I am tooo fat now] teamed with the Thai fisherman’s trousers I made for her some weeks ago, but didn’t blog.
Not much to say, they’re ‘drafted’ from a pair she was given years ago, with a slightly higher crotch curve than the originals, and not so many seams. I assume the original fabric is of narrow width, hence multiple piecing. The ‘waistband’ is very wide, and is worn folded down over the ties. The fabric is a beautiful shot linen mix of some sort, which I snagged at the Fancy Silk Store a few weeks ago. It shimmers beautifully in the light, as the blue/violet threads are highlighted.
Here she is, being photo bombed by Miss Vita, who co-ordinates rather well.
A bit crumpled as we’d been sitting at lunch stuffing our faces for quite a while!
And a close-up of the fabric. I want to buy more of this, they seem to have it in about ten colourways…
She looks like a luxury box of chocolates. Yum.
