Cobra Corsage Clare Pants

It's all about the fabric today - this beautiful Cobra Corsage print by Lady McElroy has been a firm favourite of mine for a while. (Yep I've made things in the viscose, jersey and twill versions). How could I resist the stretch-suiting version when Minerva called out!

 

Full disclosure - I got the fabric for free in exchange for a blog post. (But I love the fabric and probably would have bought it anyway!)

The stretch in this fabric is ideal for trousers and the thickness very forgiving. I used my regular Style Arc Clare Pant pattern but lockdown weight has made them a little snug! Isn't everything.

I think they will be Spring/Summer trousers with sandals mainly because I have no idea what footwear to put on with these 7/8 trousers! They seem a bit for an awkward length this time for some reason. Previous versions are here. 

A great pattern to show off the print I think and one of my favourite parts is that the waist-tie hides all the elastic gathers at the back for a smooth looking finish.

 

To match the theme I had to pair these with some amazing bug jewellery I picked up from Kirstin Stride (one of my FAVE indie designers). The pic doesn't do them justice as they are metallic with domed resin for the shells.
