Palazzo pants are one of those closet items that are the perfect mix of sexy and comfy. They are just right for warm summer days and transition well into the fall season. They are usually made of light weight fabrics that are forgiving and work well with all body shapes. Worn with or without heels, these pants are ideal for running errands or grabbing dinner with the girls. Palazzo pants are definitely being added to my ‘to sew’ list.
What do you think about these pants? Do you have a pair or have you had your eye on them but just haven’t made the leap?
A big congratulations to Rachel Baptiste, the winner of the tulle skirt giveaway!! Look out for an email with further instructions. Thanks to all that participated in the contest…stay tuned for future ones to come.
I had a birthday outing to attend this past Saturday and like plenty of ladies, I didn’t have anything to wear. So instead of searching for something or even making a quick dash to the mall, I decided to create something to wear. This wouldn’t have been a bad idea if I had a lot of time on my hands. But I literally had only 2 hours to complete a look. Can you say ‘marathon sewing’? (more…)
There’s nothing more visually appealing than a man in a nicely tailored suit with the perfect accessories. But what takes me over the edge is when women incorporate menswear in their styling. So when I couldn’t decide on what to wear to a recent charity dinner, I figured why not try something a little different. The bow tie and tulle skirt idea was the perfect combo of masculine with super feminine. (more…)
I’ve always had a love/hate relationship with jumpsuits. I love them because they are versatile and can quickly go from night to day with the help of great accessories. I don’t like them because they are generally designed for the average sized female. This is perfect if you usually buy your items straight off the rack. But if you’re like me whose body type isn’t as conventional, jumpsuits that fit well are tough to find. They are either to tight, too short, or simply look a mess. So for years, I have simply admired jumpsuits from afar. Until I made my first jumpsuit using Mimi G’s sweatpants tutorial (which seems to be discontinued). But now I’m venturing off on my own and drafting a pantsuit for a sewing challenge. Can’t wait to show you what I come up with. (more…)
