Friends, it's confession time. This is actually the third pair of trousers I've made from Simplicity 3688, but the first pair to be featured on the blog. I wear the others regularly, but have just never had a chance to take pictures. As you can see from the below photo evidence, I am adjusting to the reality of using a timer. (It's not so bad, and besides, it's like giving you a mini-tour of my new digs!)
Back to the trousers...
I LOVE THEM.
I had fallen for this pattern when I made this blouse (originally seen here), but once I made the trousers, I was hooked. The darts allow for a fantastic fit, the legs are perfectly wide for some fabulous swishing when I walk, and the high waist fits without any adjustment whatsoever. An all around win, if I do say so myself.
I don't know how I made it so long without having a set of black trousers in my wardrobe, but these fill a HUGE gap. Next up: a black pencil skirt to fill another chasm in my closet.
After that, who knows? Whatever I like, I suppose :)
Have a marvelous night, all!
PS. You can see rocks attached to my walls in the top two photos. Yes, those are rocks. I have no idea how they got there, nor does the girl that lived here before me. The aren't part of the wall - they are hung like art. Totally quirky, right?
