Waistcoat finished - Pants nearly there...


I've pretty much finished my Katherine Hepburn inspired ensemble. The waistcoat went without a hitch (although I'm still unsure about that print) the pants were a dream until the yoke and the facing. I always struggle with facings especially curved facings. I think the interfacing often shrinks them and then I struggle to get the front facings to match. After some seam ripping I got there but it delayed me so I didn't get the zipper in. Oh well!

I really love this silhouette and I hope that you can get the feel for how much of a wide leg the trousers actually are. This is my favourite look and it hides a multitude of sins especially a big butt like mine!
