Finally. Le pantalon rouge is finished!
Le pantalon rouge as an idea has existed for quite a while. Anders has been talking about me sewing a pair for at least a year and a half.
Then, last summer I found a suiting red fabric at Ohlssons tyger. Did this inspire me to sew le pantalon rouge? No, no. Still, I did know what pattern to use. I already have a pair of pantalon noir that I am satisfied with, so the pattern is the same as for those.
Well, Christmas came, and I finally took the time to cut out the pieces and sew the first seams. And then I took a break. A looong break. Until a couple of nights ago, when I said to myself: “finish le pantalon rouge”. And so I did. And here are the results. I am quite satisfied, actually.
Bird´s eye view:
Next big project is this summer dress from Vogue Patterns in a soft linen fabric I found at Stoff o Stil.
But first, I will make myself a dress form. Exciting!
