I know I'm supposed to be working on my Angela Wolf jeans but I had to buy some more denim and I got sidetracked with Style Arc's Barb's Stretch Pant in the meantime. I got this pattern as a free download for signing up for their newsletter.
I have mentioned that Daughter has been losing weight. I took in a couple of pairs of her black work pants for her (rather substantially) but they are hanging on her again. I figured it's time for new pants for the girl, and knowing that she needs something comfortable but office appropriate I've been eyeing this pattern. The pattern is drafted for a stretch woven, and recommends Stretch Bengaline. Fabricland had their members 50% off sale yesterday and I went looking to see what they have. They don't carry Bengaline (not that I even know what that is), but the staff recommended either a ponte or the "Symphony" fabric I ended up chosing, a poly-lycra sturdy knit with a nice weight and drape and a beautiful finish. I bought enough so that I could have a pair as well.
