More slacks. Simplicity 4401 again.
This leopard fabric is so very strange. I was searching fabric.com for bottom weight twills and when this popped up on my screen I though, "Oh YES!" But it's just weird.
It's possible that I bought upholstery fabric by accident. It doesn't have a lot of stretch to start with but as the day goes on, it gets droopier and droopier and never quite snaps back. But the next time I wear them, the trousers have gone back to their original shape.
So strange. After the first few wears, I took the waistband off and added pintucking front and back to help them look a little more tailored.
Also, the leopard print runs across the grain and I managed to cut these slacks out in such a way that the dark stripe cuts across my body. I look like a leopard ice cream cone. Despite all the issues I like them. They are as comfy as sweats but a teensy bit classier.
But only a teensy bit.
