check out my new clovers! i kind of love them… obviously, i used the infamous Clover Pant pattern from Colette Patterns. it’s a great pattern as it is, but i knew that i would love it even more using Sallieoh’s tutorial to create front pockets and a front fly.
i didn’t do any modifications to the pattern as these were supposed to be my muslin. i think that they fit pretty well, but i need to do some work on the waistband. it’s a little too tight so i’ll probably grade up next time.
i went to Joann’s hoping to find some cotton twill with some lycra in it, but the best i could find also had a fair amount of polyester in it. wanting to start this project ASAP, i got the cotton/poly/lycra blend and got to work. i don’t love the fabric, but it’s a good color and i think that i will get a lot of wear out of these pants in the fall.
my sister Ruby and her boyfriend Jeremy came over for dinner last night, so i threw these on with my favorite black tank top and my beloved JCrew leather wedges. seriously, these things are so comfortable and go with EVERYTHING.
