I’ve got a thing for purple pants. Purple is a neutral color in my wardrobe; it goes with pretty much everything I own. These purple jeans are rocking my world these days and we are kicking ass together.
I drafted the pattern over the summer to be made from lightweight woven cottons, so this stretch denim was a bit of an experiment. I’m happy overall with how the pattern translated between fabrics, but I do suspect that the horizontal wrinkles throughout this version are due to the stretchiness. So I guess that means I’ll need to make another experiment, maybe next time in cobalt corduroy…
Yep, center back zip. It gives me the fit I want and is really great for Vespa riding.
Looking at these photos, I’m inspired to add some grape accents to pull out the contrast of the zipper color. Nothing a little paint can’t handle.
Of course, there’s more purple fabric earmarked for pants!
