Hot Patterns Wong-Singh-Jones Marrakesh Pants - Take 2

I have finally got photographs of my second pair of HP WSJ Marrakesh pants. These are made from a cheap inexpensive fabric from a chain store. That is why it has taken so long to photograph as it has been too warm to wear them up until this week!

I found the fabric has a lovely drape but was a real b**ch to sew. It also didn't press well, but then again it doesn't wrinkle, so I suppose you can't have everything!

The other interesting factor is that these pants are a much firmer fit than my previous pair made in a cotton/linen blend. Most notably around my derriere. However they are still wearable (I hope - please don't tell me if you don't think they work) and I have noted for future reference, that different fabrics do behave very differently in the same pattern.

Anyway, 'nuff said, photo time...

I have another piece of fabric bought recently from Gorgeous Fabrics that I would like to make pair #3 from.

I am still not caught up - I should review this pattern and I have yet to take photos of my latest dress...

  1. Sue, I like these, maybe even more than your first pair, but then I can't feel the cheap fabric. :) I like the sleek fit. I wish my pattern would hurry up and arrive.

  3. They look great! I can tell that the fabric didn't want to press nicely in the photo of the waist drawstring. The bad thing about this fabric is that it will wear like iron and go through the laundry great unlike really nice fabric that you have to truly take care with.
