Hi to all! Well, I was kind of saving these pants for Jungle January...but just can't do it. I need to get back to blogging, it's Sewing Month, and I've been living in my Pattern Emporium Harem pants since my surgery in August. So here's the pair no one has seen.
I am in love love love with this pattern. My original post, with lots of chat about the pattern options and what I ended up sewing, is here - two pairs, both in ITY knit.
And I wore another pair, in black ITY knit when I blogged my B5954 knit tops...

Purple and animal print, my fav's.
The fabric is a heat-crinkled ITY from Fabric Mart, and it's definitely not an everyday ITY. At first it seemed somewhat stiff and weird. But it softened up in the laundry, so I kept it. I'm glad I did. Sometimes it pays to be patient and see what happens.
I even managed to keep the animals pretty much under control, so I don't have a blaring target in the wrong places!
Where did my head go in these pics? Truthfully, I just got out of the shower. And I can't reach above my head to do my hair yet. No way am I going to post a pic of my wet head!
I have 3 more pieces of animal print fabric in my stash, ready for January. Fabric and patterns - my weakness (aside from coffee).
It's been a nice day. I started a Merchant & Mills Bantam Vest this morning. It's not a big project and will be finished soon. In a rambunctious purple print lawn fabric...
Bye for now! Coco
