OWOP Day 3: Sunshine Galore!


OWOP pattern: Simplicity 3688 dark green trousers made in a lightweight suiting material.  First blogged about here.  These trousers are perfect for warmer spring days.

Styling: I wore my green trousers with my very first me-made garment, a blouse from a 1942 Du Barry pattern, my favourite black cardigan and my Ness pink tartan wedge shoes

What I did: I went to work and then went out at lunchtime to enjoy the absolutely BEAUTIFUL day!  My boss (who is Scottish) says that she doesn't remember ever having such a lovely sunny and warm day in March. Ever.  It was almost 70 degrees (20 degrees Celsius)--that's like our summer weather!

Here's to many more sunny days!

  3. Hi Debi,

    I'm a long time reader of your blog and just love all the things you sew. You're such an inspiration. But what I love most, are all the picture you take with the landscape of Scotland. We have been there twice, before our girls have been born and we just loved it. And despite everybody said, take care of the weather, every time we went there it was just lovely.

    Many greetings from southern Germany

  4. I'm so impressed with anyone doing this owop thing - I'd have to do some serious cheating to participate! LOL

    I love all your versions of the pants so far.

    We had gorgeous weather in Southampton too. So nice, but if it carries on it does mean we will be getting a hosepipe ban this year :(

  6. I haven't dived into the depths of separates yet. But, I hope someday, I'll be able to make a pair of pants as flattering as these!

  7. Here in Indiana summer is 90s or more. Plus humidity. Still, I love it. Scotland does look lovey. I would love to visit someday.

  8. Hi Debi,
    I should have taken this challenge to wear a pattern all week, but somehow time got by me. Anyway, I wanted to tell you that I have always loved these pants on you, so last night I brought the pattern on Ebay.If you have any construction suggestions I would love to hear them. These are wonderful, I love the blue ones you did too!

  9. What a great wardrobe staple this pattern has become for you.  I must sew myself a pair of pants -especially since I have the perfect pattern (BurdaStyle's Bella)!  And I love the backgrounds in all of your photos.  I should photoshop them into my photos (hehe).

  10. The weather looks lovely. I love your ness wedges and your OWOP pattern is so flattering. I might have to see if I can find a copy of the pattern.

  13. So cute! :) I've been wearing my 40s trousers a lot lately too--it's great for this weather. We've been having some days in the 70s and even hitting 80 one day last week! But now it's back to chilly (mid 50s), March-like temps. ;) At least I know spring *is* on the way!

  15. Love the outfit of course! We have been having amazing weather here too (Michigan USA) So warm it was almost too warm, but I'll take that instead of snow. It's dropped back down again but it's still sunny and green.

    Sounds like we are having similar weather :)  For spring at least....I know VA will beat Scotland in the weather department when summer comes!
