pants Avy

Hello, hope you're very well!

As for me, I hate these tweed pants... because they really don't show their pretty texture, figure, lightness, and loveliness in my pictures. And what is more, I imagine that you can't even find the pants in the pictures because they are melting in my usual background. Mmm!

Yes, I admit I am too upset, I shouldn't have forgotten to mention that I really love my new invisible but playful gaucho pants in the first line. I apologize to you.

I lengthened the pants quite a lot, they are much longer than the length which the pattern originally calls for. Since I'm feeling like roomy and flowy clothes right this moment, they are so very perfect to me. They're fun! I'm so happy with them.

  3. Oh, you're sneaky! I was thinking "What? Yoshimi has wadders? I don't believe it!"

    Those are very nice---I love the wide drape with the heavy fabric, and the texture looks lovely in the closeup. They look like the perfect fall pants! :)

  8. That fabric is gorgeous, and the whole ensemble is very chic. :-) I've always liked the look of light colored pants, but have never had the courage to wear them.

  13. Hi Yoshimi,

    I adore these pants they look elegant on you.

    I have a question: you make a lot of things in wool. Do you have a huge dry cleaning bill or do you have some other way to maintain your garments?

    Thanks!

  14. Hi lorrwill, thank you for your kind comment!
    Although these gaucho pants will be one of the exceptions because of their heaviness, I usually wash most of my woolen garments at home. I'd bring my coats, jackets and some wintry heavy garments to the dry cleaner, but I tend to wash wool jumpers, pants, or skirts at home with my washing machine. I wash my silk garments at home too. I do not try to recommend it to others, but as far as I'm concerned, I'm happy with the "delicate mode" of my washing machine. I always wash my fabrics before sewing if I want to wash the garments at home, and I believe that this pre-washing process cannot be omitted too.

  15. Thanks for answering my question.  I also wash several things at home. But not tailored items.
