Halla Women’s Lounge Pants Showdown!

After making three pairs of Halla Kids Lounge Pants last year, I was chatting with Samantha, the designer at Halla, who was floored when I mentioned that I'd never been brave enough to sew pants for myself. "Make my pants. You will love them." - is what she said (in a nutshell!). So an idea was… Continue reading Halla Women’s Lounge Pants Showdown!
