Hello everyone and welcome back! I am STILL sewing leopard print, if you havent noticed by the title of this blog, and I am LOVING it! This week I have teamed up with one of my favorite sewing bloggers Keira also known as @islandsewcialist on instagram. We noticed we both had similar leopard print fabric and decided to both come up with our own looks for this beautiful fabric.
Lately, I have been all about comfort and style, more so than before. I also really wanted to have an “urban” feel to this outfit. To make this happen I used Mimi G for simplicity pattern 8750 to make some classic wide leg “sweatpants”. That is in quotes because they aren’t actually sweat pants. These pants have a zipper fly and your choice of button for closure at the top. I used the same snaps I used for the slits on the legs. I found some amazing metal snaps on Amazon (120 Set Leather Snap Fasteners Kit, 12.5mm Metal Button Snaps Press Studs with 4 Installation Tools, 6 Color Leather Snaps for Clothes, Jackets, Jeans Wears, Bracelets, Bags) and it gave these pants a more “expensive” look, you can’t see them in the pictures but they look so good in person. There isn’t much I would change on this patterns as the fit was perfect for me. I cut a size fourteen. These pants are also high waist, and i love them! Keep in mind that this pattern is for stretch knit fabrics! Also, there is a sew along for this pattern so make sure to check out YouTube for it, with the sew along any level sewist can make these amazing pants.
I used a crepe textured knit fabric for my pants, just like my last look. I wanted to make this an urban fall look and I really wanted to pair these pants with something red. I Knew I wanted to wear my red Fila Disruptors and i found a red sweater in my closet. At first I did not like the sweater with these pants but I tucked in the front and added the Red Sox hat and I was sold. I was walking around looking like a fashionable Bostonian (lol).
There isn’t much else to say but that this look brought me back to the 90’s like many of my past outfits have. I enjoyed wearing this as it falls into my “comfort” requirement for making clothes (lol). I hope you all enjoyed this look and I will see you again at the next blog post!
