This is an all-new outfit for today; another pair of corduroy jeans, these in my new favourite neutral, greige. These are made using Burda 7863 again, fitted to me, with a zip placket and coin pocket added, and flared out from knee to ankle by about ten centimetres overall circumference wider than the pattern. To line the waistband and pocket I used the very last of the leftover fabric from Sam's shirt. (and thanks, for your kind words of comfort about Sam being away, he will be back in a few weeks!)
The T-shirt is made from the leftovers of my Jailbreak dress, my own design, drafted roughly from T-shirts I already have. I wanted to have the neck, sleeve and hemline binding stripes lined up perpendicularly to the body of the T-shirt; the only difficulty to achieving this effect was that the jersey fabric had no stretch in this direction. However I managed to make it work; the bands fit nicely over my wrist but don't contract snugly over my arms like a stretch would, c'est la vie...
The scarf is merely a strip of leftover fabric from my greige top with half-raglan sleeves, seen worn together like this it can be seen the new pants are going to be a perfect match for that top... yay for mono-tonal dressing! According to my latest Vogue, mono-tonal is in in in!! Along with the sailor-striped top... nice to know I'm looking sort of "in" when just doing the housework, no?!
The socks are handknit by me also...
In blogger news, Trudy, of Sewing with Trudy, has awarded me with a Beautiful Blogger award, thankyou so much Trudy! Trudy always takes the time to leave a kind and thoughtful comment on my blog, and she has been so sweet and supportive of me! I have received this award before so I am, however, thinking of you when I say I won't try to think of yet another ten things about me (truly I'm not very interesting!), but if you wish to read the 10 things I wrote about before then you can click on the Beautiful Blogger button in my sidebar.
