(Incomplete) Black Wool Pants

For the most part, my blog posts are about finished items. These pants aren't finished yet. They need to be hemmed and I think I need to completely redo the waistband (a real bummer since it is totally completed). So, I wish this was a post about a finished item, but instead it is just a post where I am excited about something new to me.

I think redoing the waistband will be worth it. I'm going to want to wear these all the time. So, of course, I want them to look good.

Both the silk and the black wool are from a trip to NY and I'm confident using them now since it's been awhile since anyone spit up on me or wiped their nose on me (thanks, kids!).

I'm happy with how the welt pockets turned out. The wool was really nice to work with. My local Fabricland rarely carries high quality fabrics like this. These were a treat to work with.

Now, where's my seam ripper...


  1. They look good! Perfect pockets, too!
    I understand why you are reluctant to redo the waistband- so much work! But, you are right, it's worth it in the end, especially if you wear the pans a lot.

  2. These are looking so professional. The silk lining sounds heavenly.
