i desperately need new work clothes. i actually went shopping to try to find some, but nothing fits well and i've gotten too snooty about fiber content. i have a dressy work thing coming up so i'm trying to make a few new clothes that i can wear this summer.
i love linen for summer. i got this fabric from sewmamasew. it's quite thick and heavy but very comfortable once washed. it reminds me of this long skirt that i used to own from the gap. please excuse the wrinkles--i just ironed the pants before i put them on in these pics, but that's linen for you.
the pants are the lounge pants pattern from amy butler's in stitches. i added back pockets from a built by wendy pattern. i was going to do a drawstring waist but i got lazy, so instead i used 1/2" elastic. the legs are very wide, but i don't think it's too bad if i wear the right shirt.
i wish i had bought enough to make a skirt too, but maybe next time.
