The Replacement Pants

A few weeks ago, I retired my pair of Cropped Wool Pants, for many different reasons, the main one being they just didn't fit me right.  I had already used this same fabric to make my Ruffled Front Dress, and amazingly still had enough left over to make another entire pair of pants!  It's the fabric that keeps on giving.  Except not any more.  Because this time I used it all up.


I AM OBSESSED WITH THESE TROUSERS.  I love the high waist, I love the pleats, I love the huge cuffs, I love the pockets, I love the wide legs.  I love literally everything about them.

They remind me of something Katharine Hepburn or Marlene Dietrich would have worn.

Plus they're comfy and feel good.  All day long!

Zipper on the side.
Pleats in the front.
