Firstly I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you about my previous post on the floral trousers. The response was amazing and Simplicity had them as Tweet of the Day!
Once again I have used the Simplicity 1696 pattern and tweaked it slightly - no zips for me this time! I made these trouser/leggings hybrid from a really good quality houndstooth ponte de roma from Minerva Crafts. I wanted to try and make some 50s-ish-Hepburn-esque-capris.
It is the exact same pattern as the floral ones, darts and all - but as the fabric is mega stretchy I just added a black elastic waistband made of black ponte as a contrast.
It feels like wearing pajamas! Ridiculously comfortable. Very pleased how the same pattern turned out with the ponte - they would be ideal for travelling as seem smart but crazy comfortable at same time.
Next on the agenda....leggings! Time to test the Burdastyle Carol leggings pattern #BS-039.
