Everybody seems to be making sewing plans this time of year, and since I’m looking at having some more free time at my hands soon, some project planning seems like a great way to ward off the double dare of funemployment and fall.
Also, the London Fashion Week is on, so I spent some time looking at the photos of various collections online. Actually, if you only watch one video of the event, watch this one – the totally delightful Burberry collection. Seriously, I’m in love. With Burberry. Who would have thought.
Then I was pointed to a young indie designer, Alice Temperley. So I poked around her website and online store, and liked a few things, and gawked some more, and then it happened.
I saw a pair of jeans. Please hold your yawns – they’re not like the Jalie jeans. In fact, they’re more like leggings … should I say jeggins?
And I couldn’t help but notice – the look just like this McCall pattern:
So now I’m slightly obsessed with finding stretch denim in cheetah/leopard print to make my version of the £300 designer leggins.
Crazy? Maybe. Inspired? Defenitely!
