Grey Trousers finished (nearly)
I am pleased to say that I have finished (nearly) my trousers to make up my ensemble for the weekend, and I think the grey works really well with the green jacket. Excuse the "50 shades of grey" title - its a book that is currently a big hit in the UK and I guess I just couldn't resist using it here - for those of you who don't know this book - just google it.
Sadly my photographer took himself off to London so I didn't have him here to take some picture of the complete outfit, but I did what I could using my cutting table and a mirror photograph of me wearing the trousers.
This is my normal TNT trouser/pant pattern, McCalls 5239 which I am pleased to say I have gradually adjusted to compensate for my weight loss.
The fabric seems to be a wool blend which I purchased from Walthamstow market, and hangs beautifully.
I decided to add a splash of colour for the inside of the waistband which brightens the whole thing up.
I only need to sew the hem, and add a button and I am done, and I have the rest of the week to do that.
Thank you for your comments on my birthday cards, and birthday wishes to my daughter who really enjoyed her roast beef, as did we all.
Thats all from me I am off to bed. Catch you later.........................
