LEARN TO SEW

HI DARLINGS! I am loving all these retro vibes I am giving off today in these DIY wide-leg corduroy pants. The pants are my SIMPLICITY #8655 wide leg, high waist pants pattern. I love great wide-leg pants so when I took two yards of MELANATED FABRICS purple CORDUROY I knew I was going to make these. The PLAID WOOL is also from MELANATED FABRICS. I only had a yard and half of this so I decided to make the CIELO TOP from Closet Core patterns. You wouldn’t think to make a blouse from wool but I knew I wanted a structured cropped top with exaggerated sleeves and this wool would be perfect! and it was.

The pants are my pattern and you can find the PATTERN HERE and of course the SEW-ALONG HERE. The top is fairly simple however I did end up taking up a center pleat because the neckline was pretty big and had a lot of extra room in the center front neck. Next time I make it I think I will remove it from the pattern before cutting.
