What kind of fabric did you use? For these pieces I just used simple cottons from my local fabric store. The pants are a stretch cotton twill, with a slight sheen.
How did you decide to reflect your personal style in the pattern? I like simple, natural fabrics and colors. I ride my bike to commute around Honolulu, so I like my clothes to be light and comfortable. I’m interested in Japanese design, and work with ceramics, and I think my garments often reflect those interests.
What thoughts do you have about the project? I really enjoyed creating these garments! I love the sculptural quality of the scalloping. I’ve never made a pair of trousers before, and had a lot of fun making a muslin, and puzzling out the fitting. Colette Patterns is such a wonderful resource: marvelous patterns, clear and informative tutorials and great ideas. Thanks so very much for all you have taught me!
