Haute Skinny Pants Using Cream Roses on Stretch Denim

I’m very excited to work on my floral denim fabric from The Fab Clique Shoppe.  This is my third fabric from the shop and all I can say about them is “wow”,  with my eyes popping!

     Cream Roses on Stretch Denim (13oz)  with 2 way stretch,  25% stretch from selvage to selvage, is perfect for creating the latest trending looks in jeans, jackets, skirts, and children’s apparel.  It has 96%cotton 4%spandex content.  Sold by the yard for only $7.50.

      So, I decided to make a pair of Haute Skinny Pants  from WBM with hacked pockets using this amazing fabric.  Some details you must know about  this pattern :

Model size 5’6″ 172 cm

The Haute skinny pants are a super fitted high waisted pant with a facing and an invisible zipper in the left side. The pants are super flattering and comfortable, and fits tightly from hip to knee.

Fabric choice:
Choose medium weight woven such as a cotton twill or denim. The fabric must include and ideal stretch of 3-6% lycra. Alternatively use a firm knit like a double knit. If choosing a knit, you may have to adjust the pattern for fit or choose a size smaller than your normal size.
These pants look amazing on all sizes. The high waistline has a slimming effect on almost any body Type.

When choosing your size, measure your waist and hip. Find the size in the body measurement chart that fits your measurements.The pattern is designed with negative ease. The garment measurements are 1″ // 2.5cm smaller than the body measurements.

All the instructions on WBM pattern are the same except the pocket.  Let go ahead and talk about the hacked pockets.   It is very easy to make a pocket with bow. Here are the pictures to achieve the look and I’m sure you can follow these steps just looking at the images below.  They are easily understood and  don’t need a lot of explanations.

The  right side and wrong side of the bows I’m making. ( That strip is to be cut into two for the center of the bows.)

Pin those pockets on back of pants or baste them ( I did both lol)

Start hand stitching the excess fabric of the bow with the pocket.  It should be easy to access underneath the bow of the pocket.

Beausoleil Top/Dress

Beausoleil Top/Dress sewing pattern was made by Itch to Stitch Patterns.   It includes an additional large format file (size A0 paper) that you can send to your print shop to print!

I am not a big fan of  open shoulder sleeve tops/dress.

Alyse Wide Leg Pant by Designer Stitch

If I have a chance to live another life, I will be a 1960s or 1970s baby.  Those decades had fabulous fashion trends! But, of course that’s not gonna happen; I’m still happy though because many of these 1960s and 1970s fashions are worn today. Capris, bell bottoms, hippie clothes, shocking colors, pop art, etc.  And who will forget the wide leg pants? Not me.

Fortunately, Designer Stitch released this Alyse Wide Leg Pants.  The on-trend styling of the Alyse Wide Pants offer a choice in leg length. A wide leg
width with 3 leg lengths – 5/8ths(long shorts), 7/8ths or full length. These pants are
designed for a stretch woven fabric which will contour around the body
without being too figure hugging.    How exciting is that? Here are the details about this gorgeous sewing pattern.
