I love how these pants turned out. They are easy to make. I made a black linen pair too. I know I will be making more pairs.
The pattern said to hem 4" above the ankle. The picture doesn't show it that well, but they do look cropped. On my black pair I made them shorter because I didn't have enough fabric and they look good too.
Made this coat from some upholstery fabric that I had from a long time ago. It worked out prefect for this coat. The collar around the back of the neck is a little different as it comes out with some of a ruffle. I used three of my polymer clay buttons that I had made sometime ago.
The coat had a opening in the center back, but I didn't see that the back was not cut on a fold so I put the openings on each side instead.
I used the larger size so that I would have enough room to wear something under the coat. This book has some interesting patterns which are included in the book. I am looking forward to trying a couple more in the future.
Our wearable art group PenWAG in Campbell, CA had Holly come and do a presentation on her trip to Japan and then a workshop on silk screening. I have enjoyed following her style on the internet for quite sometime.
This is a old linen man's shirt I found to recycle. I did some of her silk screening and then added some hand sewing.
I used jelly roll fabric for the trim.
The side slits. Also used a selvage from a knit fabric that I had saved. Made great trim.
