Over the weekend I conquered a sewing fear of mine.
Let's all ignore the horrible lighting and the wrinkles. It gets dark in the afternoon here people! :)
If you've ever wanted to attempt a zip fly too, this is a great video tutorial, that helped me bunches.
My sewing resolution this year was to try some things I've never tried before, and thought were too difficult. I'm glad I did, because now I won't ever look at a pattern of zip fly pants again, wish I could make them, but decide they were beyond me and go on to another pattern.
fall 2009 issue of Ottobre (they're #12). I've wanted to make them since I received this issue. They have sweet little gathered front pockets.
Now, for the question.
As much as I loved making these pants and love the design of them, when they were all said and done I'm not sure I'm sold on them.
Is this cord a bit too wild for them? Cute with a little red babydoll top, or don't bother?
I can't decide if they're cool, or really not cool in this print.
I do plan to make another pair in a really thin lightwash denim. I think those will be really cute and vintagey. Especially with cute back buttons.
Do you have any sewing resolutions this year?
