The other day I dug these wool, tweed bell-bottoms out of my me made wardrobe and realised I never put them on my blog. I made them a few months ago but I’ve been waiting for the weather to get colder to get some proper wear out of them. I used this retro pattern which you really have squint at and use your imagination to picture anything good coming from – it is probably quite daring for me going for such a wide leg but I ended up loving them! They are just perfect for work with a black shirt and black heeled ankle boots. So surprisingly this pattern is on my remake list!
When I made these I was immensely proud as I made them in a day, including cutting out the pattern and fabric pieces. I think it’s given me the confidence to know that I can sew and I can attempt making a wardrobe of me made items that I’ll wear regularly. Also, I don’t want to boast but look at the pattern matching!
So now the cold weather is coming in, I’m looking forward to getting a lot of wear out of these! Another note my jacket is coming together rather nicely. The main jacket is made, I’m just construction the lining now.
Well, currently I can hear lots of pops and bangs going off outside and I can’t wait for our own firework night tomorrow. Hope you’re all enjoying the fireworks too. (Keep those cats and dogs in!)
