I’m ushering in the first day of the year of the Dragon with a huge BANG! Found this fabulous fabric on sale in Liberty a week ago and immediately fell in love with it. I was going through the fabrics and somehow laid this on my lap and I notice how this lovely print can be translated into a pair of trouser.
A close shot of the fabric. Luckily I have short legs so the metre remnant was just right for me. Although I did buy another piece just in case. Or if I needed another pair of shorts for summer (AGAIN!). However, the tana lawn from Liberty can be a bit thin so I backed it up with a black cotton fabric.
The pattern for this trousers is pretty simple as I didn’t want to interrupt the flow of the print. So I used my slim fit trouser pattern but ommited the belt loops. I did sew in two straps at the each side so I can tie the waistband tighter in case if I lost inches from my waist (I highly doubt that).
I hope that I have not scared the dragon away with this print but saying that, I am mustering the courage to wear this loud; Liberty print trouser. Maybe summer, when I can pair this with a plain white T-shirt and sandals.
Anyway, Happy Chinese New Year to all my readers. Wishing you a prosperous new year!
