I can't say the same for my plaid matching. It looks fine where the fronts and backs meet at the centres. It doesn't look so fine where the front and backs meet on the side seam and inner legs. Oh well. It doesn't stop me from lovin' these latest pair of pants.
The fabric that I used is a heavier weight wool than the other three I've made. It has been cold, damn cold in these parts. Of course now that I have these pants done this is the forecast for the upcoming week.
Yup, single digits temperatures. Don't get me wrong, I'm thrilled that we are will experience single digit temperatures. But it would have been perfect if I had these pants earlier last week, they are that toasty warm. No long johns needed with these wool pants.
The thread was stash-busted from some left-over thread I picked up when I made Vogue 1312. It was a perfect match. The bias tape was stash-busted too. It was left-over bias tape from the spring coat project. The zipper was stash-busted also but I had to dump out my zipper drawer and do some digging before I found one that worked. It was a close call as to whether or not I would have to run out to the store. It is not a perfect match, the zipper is a little lighter in colour than my fashion fabric but it works none-the-less. Gotta love stash-busting!
Not much else to mention about these pants. Other than maybe I should make a linen pair for summer? Or perhaps a pair in white denim?
