Teenage photographers, in the rain, using a camera without auto focus… It’s kind of a miracle there are pictures at all. It really would have been too much to ask that all of the pictures actually be in focus or that I don’t have a funny look on my face, etc.
More Luna Pants. I didn’t have a chance to talk about my last pair. My biggest regret with them was that I didn’t have enough of the linen left for the pockets and I used muslin, thinking it wouldn’t be a big deal, but there are flashes of white from the pockets when I move and it looks funny. I didn’t make that mistake with this pair, which are of a very thick cotton flannel shirting in a herringbone pattern.
I wanted wool trousers, but cotton was a more affordable option. The linen ones are better for in-between seasons, but these will actually provide a decent level of warmth on chilly days.
In a nutshell: I’m still not sure how I feel about the whole jogger pant trend thing- style wise. But I really like Rae’s patterns. And from the perspectives of comfort and ease of sewing, it was clear these would be a good match. And they are- both comfortable and easy to make. The fit is good. I love the pockets. I don’t have a lot of tops that work well with them.
