Well I found another navy spot fabric. I'm sure this was from Pitt Trading. The spots are larger and the fabric is more firmer and light weight. The solution - trousers for summer.
This spots below is my second test trousers for McCalls 5397.
I had to check the fit of this pattern and the fly front I added. The centre back zip wasn't working for me. Not that it was uncomfortable. I'm not used to a centre back zip on trousers.
This fabric holds its own because it's very firm and because it's dark it won't show creases.
So while the pattern shows slim-fitted trousers, they do have room in the leg, but the leg line is straight.
My 'white shirt' is Vogue 8815. The top feels a bit short but it looks ok in these photos so I'll hang fire on adding an additional longer peplum.
I have a stack of post about everything that's happened this month. I'll get these posted once I have a chance to regroup. This has been an inspiring month in lots of ways!
