I’m back in familiar sewing territory now, don’t worry! I’ve made myself another pair of Simplicity 8457 pants.
This pair is in deep forest-y, almost racing green linen from The Fabric Store, and it was an absolute dream to work with.
I’m hoping to wear them in both summer and winter, because the linen is a little bit thick for the cooler months, but it is still linen, so it will keep me cool in summer.
I made them entirely on my treadle machine, which confirms that such a feat is possible. I put the zip in by hand, and I must say, it’s probably my best invisible zip.
Do I need a pair in black? Probably not. Do I want a pair in black? Maybe.
What will I sew next? Something small! (I would like a travel sewing kit, and I’ve got some bag-making books that need my attention…)
Anyways, see ya!
