Wiksten

A turnable Wiksten without pockets and with one dark side and one raw side. I love the double faced Italian wool, so thick and soft.  Im trying to get better at dressing in layers and two outer garments on top of each other is a favorite right now.. The pattern for the Wiksten is available here.

Calyer – Pinstripe

Pinstripes are called chalk strokes in Swedish and I find them difficult, very difficult. The fabric has matured in my stash for years. It’s pure wool, slightly shiny and absolutely gorgeous. I bought it at a long lost time when goth was something to strive for, I think it was supposed to make a ruffled mini skirt. The times change thankfully and now it became the Calyer pants from French Navy instead. It’s a great pants pattern, link here. The cut is slightly unusual with the side seam moved toward the front and with dramatic tapering at the legs. It’s very comfortable and my most used pants at the moment.
