SOMETIMES IT'S IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD...

... I LOVE Named Patterns - yes I do!, as I love lots of other independent pattern companies, yet I'm  always just a little bit hesitant to purchase.  Most are just a little out of my reach because it involves international shipping, or lets not mention long PDF taping sessions, currency that I don't understand, and a pattern company that I am unfamiliar with.   I've been experiencing a recent pattern obsession ya'll - which isn't a bit strange for me.  I've fallen in love with this pattern


Aren't these just the perfect summer pants?!  Made up in just the right fabric (that you know already exists in my stash, I know I'd enjoy wearing these and that they would get HEAVY rotation in the wardrobe line up.  But then again, I just didn't want to order.  Just as I had enlisted my friend Myra  (who has helped me find other elusive patterns) to help me nail down a similar obtainable Big 4 pattern, I typed "crossover pants images" into a Google search and looky what popped up.  I LOVE GOOGLE!

The very best part of it all is I'm blessed to have this May 2012 issue of Burda Style Magazine in my possession so I don't have to go on a search for it (I grow tired of searching).  Sometimes what we want can be found right in our own back yards - or a drawer of our night stand in this case.   Even though I will not be able to trace today - there is tomorrow...

    1. Aren't they gorgeous Andrea - I in love and don't even think I'll mind tracing the pattern. I've got a really lite weight denim and a gray tweedy linen I want to use to make two pair.

    4. I have that aqua linen I was pressing on my scope the other day. Just the perfect fabric along with a matching tank top or vest would be great.

    5. Oh yes I remember the aqua linen you pressed - that would be perfect for these.

    1. Michelle I know!!! I saw you post it on your blog, FB somewhere, can't remember. I said "Oh she has the pattern"! I have to try and morph it from the Burda Pattern (still haven't gotten up the energy to trace it from the magazine yet). I know you'll enjoy that gift!!!
