Day 10 MMM'19: Captain Clash

 and the Fight Against Blasé-ness

~ pay no heed to that hand jive ~
Who knew burnt orange and purply-pink would look so smashing together?!

You've seen this all before, only not all together.  Hat is from Secret Lentil, last seen here.  Coat is made from Tina Givens Becca pattern, last seen here.


Underneath is my exercise wear for today.

I think it helps a bit.

Here's another one of those vests I was talking about in yesterday's post

~ back view, and a peak at side contrasts ~

Pants are made from Sandra Betzina's Vogue 1355 pattern using challis fabric.  I also made a matching top for them as seen here.


~ inside view ~

Here you can see a bit of the red side of the reversible vest.  And my stretch mesh ivory Parisian scene top.  It's just a plain t-shirt type top and I don't recall what pattern, if any I used.



~ Vivienne Trippen shoes from ebay ~

I spy something floral, so off I go to Spy Girl's May Florals link-up.  And a hat for Judith's May Hat Attack! 

Until tomorrow,

  3. I love my Trippens, and I particularily love my Viviennes, which I have in red and am crusing for different colors (that is, not black) on the ebay.

    But them pants.....I just love them.

    1. Paint 'em, the Trippens that is.

      I've used that Sandra Betzina pattern a lot for pants. It has no side seams and I jerry-rig them to work with non-knits and be drop-crotch.

  4. Those pants are super cool - love the colour and pattern of the fabric you used.

    1. I think they're an easy pattern to work with if you ever want to try them, Shelley. If you're not using a knit, you just have to leave the narrow ankle a little wider when you're cutting them out.
