clash of prints

Once more, my sewing skills have been summoned and I managed to sew a pair of jungle print trousers (as if I'm running short of them, haha). This fabric has been a nightmare to sew, because it is particularly slippery, but I was thinking all the time on how cool is to wear a pair of flowy pants, so I didn't give up!. And now I have this wide and flowy pants, with some parrots and tropical plants on them, and they swoosh when I walk!
Obviously, I took this pictures in a windy day, to make things more interesting, as my clothes were moving all the time, particularly those fab flowy pants. I picked a floral shirt and a striped jacket, because I was looking for something 80's and thought on a good clash of prints to link Modish Matrons: Inspired by the 80's

De nuevo he echado mano de mis (pocas) habilidades de costura y he conseguido coserme este par de pantalones con estampado tropical (como si me hiciera falta otro par!). Esta tela ha sido una pesadilla de coser, es muy resbalosa, pero estaba pensando todo el rato en cómo mola llevar pantalones de tejidos fluidos, así que no me rendí!. Y ahora tengo estos pantalones muy anchos y muy sueltos, con loros y estampado tropical, y flotan maravillosamente cuando camino.
Evidentemente, tenía que sacarme fotos en un día de viento, para añadirle interés, con la ropa moviéndose todo el tiempo, especialmente mis estupendos pantalones anchos. Y elegí una camisa con florecitas y una chaqueta de rayas, porque buscaba alto ochentero, y me pareció que esta mezcla de estampados iba bien para unirme al enlace Modish Matrons: Inspired by the 80's
