‘Pant’-ing Towards the Finishing Line…

  1. Hmm. You’re old enough; remember the song “Things that make you go ‘hmm'”? I have that pattern. Thanks to Joanns I have a gazumpty katrillion patterns. I have been lukewarm about their baggy enormity, but that gather on the side is looking far more intriguing in real life than I’d ever given it credit for. If I made that shape the hem on the pants (an elongated angled line that starts as a oval cut in) I might be happy. Or a really funky hobbit. And at this point in my life, I can go either way.
    Thanks for this. Pinning to the ‘funky pants’ department.

  2. These trousers are such a lovely design. The drawstring bit is a work of genius and I do like the shape. They look lovely on. I bet that they are brilliant in the summer. Lovely fabric. Xx

  3. I’m not seeing these as an at all unflattering look on you, especially with the closer fitting black top. Maybe just unfamiliar? And yes, very interesting pattern, I hadn’t looked closely at it before.

    1. Thanks, twice! The hair is in desperate need of a cut, but I’m liking the colour too. I’ve been toning it down to ashy/beigey blonde, in the hope I can grow out and let it go grey- but my roots are still too pepper & salt to let it go yet. I cycle between some of the lightest shades on the Preference range, mainly 10.1 and 10.21, with occasional 01 and 9.1. Makes it look highlighted!

  4. I love, love, love the look of those trousers! They’re absolutely awesome, I love that fabric and the colour, and can I steal your shoes? (No, wait, there’s no way they’ll fit – but I do want a pair like them!) The ruching thing/upside—down pocket on the lower leg is genious. Looks so funky and gives shape. Actually, these remind me of some former favourite trousers of mine, made in a very soft and drapey red baby cord. I might have to splurge on this pattern… Don’t know how you got the idea these are not flattering, you look fabulous!

    1. lol thanks for the enthusiasm- I must admit, I keep reaching for them, so they def feel good to wear! The shoes are dying unfortunately- the kind that can’t be re-soled. they are actually HAIRY which makes me absurdly happy, very odd things!

    1. Lol I’m as cool as a black of lard, but thanks! They feel good to wear, I just need to try them with various tunics to see if they look too pyjama-like, then they may well enter the SWAP. Another pair in black would be very useful, I must admit.
