Spotted fabric lives in my stash. A recent hunt in my stash made me realise there were spots here and there. Navy spots made their way onto my Chloe dress by Victory Patterns. These spots are small and the fabric is light weight. So good to wear in summer.
Well I found another navy spot fabric. I’m sure this was from Pitt Trading. The spots are larger and the fabric is more firmer and light weight. The solution – trousers for summer.
This spots below is my second test trousers for McCalls 5397.
I had to check the fit of this pattern and the fly front I added. The centre back zip wasn’t working for me. Not that it was uncomfortable. I’m not used to a centre back zip on trousers.
This fabric holds its own because it’s very firm and because it’s dark it won’t show creases.
So while the pattern shows slim-fitted trousers, they do have room in the leg, but the leg line is straight.
