"Remarkable" Trackies



Ok I am stretching to truth a little bit here  because really there is nothing remarkable about this version of Papercut Anima but the photo above is taken in front of the Remarkables mountain range and ski field in Queenstown.  I actually wasn't sure about the length of these pants but they are practical for spring attire.


I made these pants out of a lovely soft piece of light weight black cotton lycra unbrushed sweat shirting that I had put aside to make something special.  I had this stored for a couple of years before coming to my senses and making into something I would actually get a lot of wear out of.  I didn't change anything form my previous pair except the length.  

These pants were perfect for the warmer days on my trip and will also come in handy as walking and cycling pants.




While I was in my frenzied pre holiday sewing mode, I also whipped up another Tessuti Alexa Tee made from the remnants of this tee.  This version has short sleeves but because it was a little cool in Queenstown  in the mornings and evenings, I layered it over a thermal.

  1. You have made some great practical garments for your holiday. I have enjoyed the beautiful scenery you have been sharing. A trip to New Zealand is definitely on my bucket list.

    1. You have to see New Zealand! We may only be 3000km apart but our scenery is very different from Australia.

  2. Love papercut papers. You should also take a look at the Ensis t-shirt. I've made 5 of them, the latest with short sleeves. Takes less than an hour to whip one up.
