Since I’m back to university I am at home a lot, so wear mostly loungy clothes. But I still want to look put together. Just because. So when I saw these pants, I knew they fit the bill. It still took me 2 years to finally make them. They were easy enough, it just takes me a looooot of time to start things.
I used navy blue romanit jersey, which is extremely soft and nice on the skin. However, it also stretches quite a bit when worn. Therefore, and to add abit of cuteness, I used a (presumably quilting) cotton for the facings. The fabric for that is from my grandma’s stash that I inherited after she died.
So I tripley love these pants: they’re comfortable, yet stylish, and they remind me of my grandma.
