I don’t have too much to say about the pants: just to note that I like wide pants because they are pretty comfortable and seem to be flattering for my figure. I only never make them too long because don’t wear high-heeled footwear for every day and can’t aford to sweep the streets with pants’ hems:-) Besides, I usually neglect pockets on the pants not to widen my hips.
The blouse is not new – from Burda 6/2005, #121.The fabric’s pattern attracted me so much that I bought it despite its stiffness ( it become possible to wear it only after a couple of washing:)) but as I arranged its stripes so well, I like it anyway:-)
Stretch herringbone blend of wool and p/e for the pants.
Some unknown blend of cotton and synthetic for the blouse.
