Yesterday was Oliver's first day of preschool and so we needed some special, new, first day clothes. (Any excuse, right?)
I've been wanting to try out the Dapper Dillinger pattern by Figgy's ever since Oliver wore them for his photo shoot in June. So, with some really great brown corduroy I had scored at one of those Fabric Depot sales and some super awesome rocket ship fabric for the lining, I whipped up a pair.
No, the pattern was well-written and easy to follow. I did find the front panel a little fussy, but that would be because I'm such a beginner. And now that it's in, it's really, really nice.
Dappers are baggy (I was pretty certain the entire time I was sewing them that they would be too big — they're not) but not at all sloppy. Somehow Figgy's has managed a comfy fit with a very stylish look. Perfect for Nana's birthday at that fancy restaurant.
