The question is do I really need the fabric to match as in a pants suit? I think probably yes, and so I am going to see what I can do for a match. Fabricmart still has the same gab I think but not the crepe. I am not sure if crepe is a good choice in narrow pants. I can see it in wide pants but I am wondering if in these they will catch, and I will have to line them even though that's not in the pattern. And the big question is will they be comfortable?
I am also thinking through these pants they are very much above the ankle and I think it looks great in the picture but I am never going to wear those shoes. At work I run up and down a lot of concrete stairs between classes in a hurry and often stand on my feet teaching for four hours straight. Plus the fact I usually walk to work, part of it through a field, very pretty but not good for elegant shoes, although I can wear other shoes and change them. The point is my feet have to move.
Also if I am going to make wool pants of any kind they are going to get worn in Nova Scotia and that means bare ankles are not going to work. What would go with these pants? The old flats and socks are not going to cut it. Some kind of boot I think although I don't have a picture in my mind.
These are all very serious questions and you know what's going to be going on in the rich inner life of my mind today at work.
I will let you know how the fabric hunt goes.
