Phoenicia, New Y...
these are my first pretty successful fitted pants. i’m quite proud of them. they’re a little bright even for me! the buttonhole isn’t the prettiest thing i’ve ever seen for now it’s ok. i used the anita pattern and drew my own pockets and added the velvet ribbon stripes. there is one strange thing about this pattern which is not a huge problem here but next time i’ll add it – there is no flap behind the zipper, therefore the waistband also doesn’t overlap a whole lot.
stretch corduroy from mood
velvet ribbon from m&j trimming
me for sewing and my friend marilyn for taking the pictures and oakley for being my co-model
