Four–yes, FOUR pairs of pants later, a knit top in a pretty cantalaupe colour is cut out on my sewing table. Today: assembly.
All of my nifty one-dot Burda trousers are linen blends. I had carefully scanned the average annual temperatures published online for Brussels, to determine the wearability of linen before buying fabric for the last two. It looked like the weather would stay warm enough for a bike commuter and teacher to want to live in linen until mid-October. But this is Belgium! No, seriously, the weather is changing and while it’s warm linen weather in the afternoon it’s cool the rest of the day, when I will be on my bike commute. I shivered on Friday night in linen pants, en route to the movie theatre to see ‘Amerikka’. Great movie, by the way!
Showers are predicted for the rest of the week, bringing the temperature even lower. I might have to break out the twill ahead of its end-of-September schedule.
Burda trousers always have a magical motivational effect on me. I will sew those when I won’t sew anything else. You could say it’s like a food you’ll cook or eat when you’re not in the mood for other food. What is your sewing motivator?
