Do I smell another V8584?
Further to our conversation yesterday about making more casual clothes, I can’t get a silky version of Vogue 8584 out of my mind. Shall I refresh your memory?
I made the version in the lower right hand corner without the cord ties.
I think this time, I would like to make the version on the left. Here’s a close up.
I think I might narrow the pant leg near the ankles. I don’t want to wear clown pants people! Not sure I want to have pockets on my hips though. I have enough hips on my own as it is. I don’t need to add to them if you know what I mean. So today at lunch I ran up to see my good friend Kashi at Metro Textiles (and bonus visit with Carolyn!). He had just the fabric for me. It’s a dark grey/brown taupe sueded silk, perfect for this pattern and oh so touchable. It’s delish! See for yourself…
If I skip the pockets, I might be able to cut and sew these up this evening in time to wear on Friday night. Here’s to hoping! Wish me luck.
