  1. They turned out awesome!

  2. These are so cool and I like the fit! I love the foxy detail on the back, too. Just perfect for Autumn x

  3. These look fabulous on you. I love, love, love the back pocket!

  4. thanks, the back pockets really make them. Watch this space for my accessory (should I ever finish it!)

  5. very nice!!! love the stitching and the colour is awesome!!

  6. Love these! The fit’s fab. This fabric is just lovely – I bought the same in this colour and a stone colour too. Reminds me I need to crack on and blog what I made 😳
