red cotton velvet with scalloped legs and Liberty for the facings. Fancy!
Where does one wear scalloped red velvet shorts? I don't know... to work at the fabric shop? That'll do me.
A few too many colours going on in this ensemble I'm afraid. But the jacket is a vintage 50s one I treated myself to at the Clarence Park Bazaar. Because you can't always sew all the things, right?
This velvet sewed up beautifully and takes topstitching well. The pattern does not suggest top-stitching the scallops but I thought this was the best way of ensuring they keep their shape.
Look, signs of spring!
