Today has been a traditional scottish day - warm, cold, sunny, freezing, raining, sunny and cold - and it's only 1pm...
So a few weeks back I read over on handmade jane's blog that there was going to be a One Week One Pattern challenge (OWOP)
coming in September! Initially I didn't think that I had the resources
to participate, however after a minute or few's thought realised 'don't
be silly Jen of course you do!!'
So what is my pattern? Well the Chataigne shorts of course! Currently I have two black pairs (easily styled for the formal office event which will no doubt take place at zero notice) and this literally *shiny* new pair... so that leaves me with plenty to work with over the week. One of the great things about the wool pair is that they stay very fresh and can easily be worn on consecutive days. The pinstripe pair are good especially for office wear or if a large curry *has* to be eaten. ahem, and finally this new pair are perfect for dancing on wednesday evening.
So this new pair of shorts are made from this lightweight cotton twill. When i bought it I didn't realise that the material was shiny but to be honest when I saw that it was it made the shorts even more appropriate for my dancing class. (my teacher is in love with shiny things :-))
There isn't really anything new with this construction apart from the fact that the waistband went in a lot easier this time.
Is anyone else taking part in this challenge?
Take care and have a good weekend
