As promised, another pair of paper-bag waist pants using the Sew House Seven Burnside Bibs pattern (original post here)
I love this Kaufman Essex yarn-dyed fabric in peacock. It’s a combo of navy and turquoise threads. Plus, I just love Essex linen for britches. My pics are lightened, so here’s the real thing:
I sewed this pretty much as I sewed as the grey pair, just changing the pattern to have a waistband, front and back, and keeping the wide waste-paper bag look.
Sewing tips: I’m a fanatic for belt loops that actually support a belt.
Front – I add a belt loop a couple inches out from the CF to support the belt buckle.
And, back -hello Burberry – I use 2 belt loops at the CB to prevent weighty drag.
I really like these, and wore them today to miscellaneous appointments. Feeling groovy, a little boho.
I have to say that I do not like the encumbrances of the new WordPress editor. I click, click, and click.
Moving on, I went through my belt hanger today and have lots of hardware to salvage!
