My approach generated one pair of Valencia pants and a lot of inspiration/information. The fabric is a cross-dyed gray linen. It's that signature flat front found in the Plaza, Urban and Trio pants. The Valencia is the most basic of those four pants patterns. Not much to show for 3 days, eh?
I'm back home and I still need to tweak the length a bit.
But I had fun trying things on and taking pictures to extend the inspiration/information plunge once home.
|This is an example of something that was fun to try on. This is a sample of the Tosca dress. It does not do much for me. Good to know.|
One of my favorite activities at Sew Kansas is exploration of their basement. They store *vintage* Sewing Workshop garments here.
There are an assortment of details in these older garments that are always appealing to me.

Please note that except for the boring gray pants in the first picture, these are samples from the Sewing Workshop, NOT my work. But I can dream.
