O dear! I have been doing some experimental sewing and half way through all courage left me…
So I would like you to boss me around and tell me what to do (yes, I know it’s not March yet, but if you can be bossy in March I am sure you can be bossy in February, ey? ).
It all started with Burdastyle 11/2011 # 105, the wrap front trousers:
I have been fascinated by this style since forever, because it adds a little interest to what is otherwise a rather boring garment. That’s the theory… But what about this:
Is that a good look? Or is it experimental as in “omg, what was she thinking”? Should I even finish these trousers (Obviously they still need hemming and a waistband)? While I like the wrap style on the models I keep forgetting that I am three sizes bigger than them and a pear shape…
Or should I abandon the wrap front idea and make them into a more standard pleated-front trouser? Like so:
Or should I just put this down to experience and move onwards and upwards with a more sensible pattern?
Sound off in the comments or hop over to the TMS Facebook page where I have created a question for all your bossing needs.
