Mixing It Up

~ but certainly not matching! ~

I had a lovely bit of 2-sided stretch denim leftover in my stash and...

voila!

~ I made reversible drop-crotch trousers ~
even though it did mean making all flat-felled seams.

Note the rolled up cuffs?  That's the reverse side showing.


~ worn with a georgette abstract floral print top ~

Made, and later altered, from an out of print V9040 top pattern.


 
~ both sides now ~


and last, but not least, no not at all

~ Trippen shoes for a song from ebay ~


Rushing on over to Patti and the Visibles of Not Dead Yet Style, Catherine's I Will Wear What I Like.  Darn tootin' on both counts.  And Cherie's Shoe & Tell.  Hope to see you there.

  1. You have the ability to divine what should be and what can be made of patterns that I did not bother to give the time of day. Partly it's fabric choices (ooh la la denim) but mostly it's your superpower.
    The Cups style Trippen worry me. Leather on the bottom? Water? Mud? Their new website removed the 'save to favorites' option, and no amount of to and fro by email with their customer service seems to change that back. They have made my daydreaming that much harder.
    But you have not. Thanks sweetie

    1. Sometimes yes, sometimes not so much to nada (see previous post).
      Water? Mud?!! Never shall my Trippens behold such things. They are strictly fair weather soles, my friend. I have Doc Martens for all foul behaving days.

  3. This outfit just sings. Every detail hits the right note. I love this riot of flowers! As SJK notes, you do have a super power for taking pattern and cloth and turning it into art!
