I need casual wear in my wardrobe and recently i have seen lots of patterned trousers in magazines etc. I used burdas jumpsuit bottom half for my trousers as they fit me perfectly. I have never had a more comfortable pair of trousers and i think they look good. I wore them out earlier with my mum even though the weathers horrendous and the trousers are more suited to spring/summer. I just wabted some pics outside, my mum and me where freezing and i was trying to smile in gale force winds lol.
The top is just a shortened version of burdas waterfall dress. I did a bit of altering to it though, i adjusted the shoulders so i could add sleeves. It turned out nice.
I’m including a pic of fabric i bought to make more trousers!! The thing is now i see it i think maybe tops,?? Any advice might help me decide. X
the last two photos i love, they’re taken at my sons graduation. Andrew wanted photos of him jumping in the air!! Well after loads of jumps i finally got the pic, so of course i had to have a go . The photo is an optimal illision and not photo shopped!! It looks like i’m way up in the air lol but the ground has a slope. I still got up in the air though xx
