the couch pants
Have you ever had a blog you love, where the blogger suddenly gets some uninteresting and totally encompassing obsession? Like the best way to crush egg shells? And do you, dear reader, sit in your chair wondering how to best say "I appreciate this is your space, but can you please talk about quilting and lipstick again?"* without seeming like some crazy blog fan?
The reason I'm bringing this up is because I adore you, I adore what we have going on, and I want to give you fair warning: I feel a pant-a-palooza coming on. I've always been a pant > skirt girl but have never, ever, found a pair that really fit. I'm a tall lass (5"10) with a size 8 waist and a size 12 ass, and if there was ever anything RTW that could fit me it was probably made in error. Despite the shitty weather (and therefore shitty photos) I am just so damn excited to share these pants with you, because goddamit they fit.
Pattern: Colette Clover
Alterations: Full-butt adjustment, lengthen the leg 15cm, plus other, minor alterations. I also aded pin-tucks to the front of the leg.
Fabric: I've forgotten but it's stretchy, cottony, and was picked by my favourite partner in crime Oliver. I also got to meet the super sexy Sophie (hi!) when buying it.
* All the characters, incidents and places in this quilting & lipstick scenario are fictitious. Resemblance to any person living or dead or any incident or place is purely coincidental. But for realsies, I would read a blog about quilting & lipstick.
