Solana Beach, Ca...
I very rarely wear these pants because I tend toward very casual clothes… but when I do wear them, I feel oh so sassy! The pattern is an old but goody – Number 119 from April 2006. The construction is quite simple except the fit is quite important. The hidden side zipper make the pants very sleek. Although I used a super inexpensive cotton blend, the lay of the pattern makes the pants look quite expensive. I would recommend this pattern for fancy dressing up (perhaps with an embroidery design peaking out from the pleats) to the sightly more casual.
Daydream about fall sewing with boho layers, oversized jackets, and a leopard pencil skirt.
