Hooray! My favorite make to date!
OK, its actually sunny outside, so forgive my pictures, I was having a heck of time getting these to turn out. Alright, alright, on with the show, and I promise to take better pictures sometime soon because I plan on wearing these ALL. THE. TIME.
I won this pattern on a contest on REVES MECHANIQUE a few months ago. And here’s why its taken me so long. I put in the zip fly about 5 different times, trying to get it just right. Unfortunately, I think all of that messing with it has stretched out the fabric a little bit. Plus I put on the waistband the wrong way-note my buttonhole mark is WAY off, almost on top of the pocket. I had to make the buttonhole vertical because there wasn’t enough room.. Oops. Oh well, I already can’t wait to make these again.
I would never wear my shirt like this but I wanted you to see how nice the booty and back pockets look.
So cute. and so comfortable. I don’t remember which size I cut, I think US 8, but they were a little big and I ended up taking in some extra at the seams. It doesn’t have quite as nice of recovery as I was hoping, so after wearing them all day the fly area got a little saggy.
they fit right inside boots!
Outside isn’t working any better picture wise, but dang! those are cute pants!
Dressed up. (please ignore sports bra, if I change outta that there’s NO WAY I’m working out later)
check out my belt loops.
Here’s how I’ll probably normally wear them. I love these! I’m looking forward to making some out of colored denim! Thanks Kim! I love these!
