As soon as I saw this fabric I had to have it! I just adore this colorway and after my red and white stripe pants wore out I’ve been on the hunt for a good bottomweight stripe. 2 yards were purchased from Core Fabrics and I had just enough fabric to make these pants. I should have bought more, but totally forgot about matching my stripes! So while my stripes aren’t perfectly lined up they are still pretty good. I focused on keeping the front looking nice and hoped for the best.
What I really love are my curve pockets! I had just enough left from my yardage to make these up and get them to match my fronts! I just love these pants. The fabric is just weighty enough with a fab drape and is so soft.
“I never met a stripe I didn’t like.“
I wear them constantly with one of my many white tees. I did make a new one to wear with these and complete my fall Look #1, but didn’t want to spend the time retaking these pics for the post. I’m wearing the pants here with one of my favorite RTW tees, my Benji shirt from Yoga with Adrienne. Super comfy and cute, plus I love supporting my fav small businesses. I do yoga with the FWFG app (member for 2 years now) and love it so much. It really helped speed up my ankle recovery and get some flexibility back in my foot. I’m so thrilled with how far I’ve come since my injury, I rarely need to do modifications anymore and was able to keep up my strength.
All the Details:
Yarn Dyed Striped Cotton Deadstock, Blue, Ivory and Black
2 Yds from CORE Fabrics, OOS but the green colorway is still available
Oops!- I totally messed up and mistagged my fabric- fixed now!
Core Fabrics- 7″ Pants + Jeans Zipper with Metal Teeth – Cream
Self drafted pant with curve pockets
These pants were a simple draft off my wide leg pant. I straightened and narrowed the leg slightly to fit the width of my yardage. The Back has 2 darts and closes with a side zipper on the right with interfacing. The waistband is narrow and interfaced and closes with a bar hook. I made a facing deep hem to keep as much length as possible, but it’s cut out of my remnants so I didn’t have to match the stripe direction. That really helped me get the most out of my yardage since the fabric was a bit narrow.
I’m almost ready to launch my embroidery pattern business! I’m finishing up all my samples and just need my product photos and I’ll be ready to go. I really love my designs and can’t wait to share what I’ve been working on. If you haven’t already be sure to sign up for my newsletter, link in sidebar and on my homepage.
Back soon with more fall makes! Happy sewing!
