Are these pants the raddest or what?! Did I mention I am moving? I will have my very own sewing work station, so that means some major sewing to come. I have kept incredibly busy,these rad Mod trousers, yeah, I made them!!! Very proud indeed and I might add I have one very stoked customer! He's already requesting 2 a month!
Check out these cool belt loops! The tricky part for me was the zipper, ooooh the zipper! But with practice I shall master it someday. Since this was my first time making any pants since Design school I had to take a while figuring out things and grading to my friend's size proved to be a huge challenge but my hard labor certainly paid off in the end. And what was my background music you ask for these past few days while working on these? Only the best compilation of songs from 60's Spanish bands that my wonderful friend made for me. One of my favorite bands from the CD is Los Brincos- OMG check em out! Their melodies are so damn catchy!
It's so exciting to be working on something new, menswear will be something I will keep working on for sure, especially if it's styled 60's and I have a guy who loves prints and appreciates vintage styles, that would be just too damn wonderful for me. If you know some hip , mod freak beat guy out there who would like custom made trousers like the ones above tell them about me! I want to work more on these and I know you cannot find these type of pants out there, the cut is true to it's time.
Thought I'd post one last picture of the pants....they made mamma proud. So , I also forgot to say how cool my friend is, whom I made these for, he's actually into the whole mod scene hardcore and will take these out dancing to his DJ 60's night! I will get pictures and post them up for their grand debut. I should go and finish packing now...ugh but at the same time YAY!
