[ON ME] Leopard coat:
Lip Color: BluRed Lipsense (
If you are familiar with my blog, then you are well aware of the cycle I seem to go through when I really loved a particular pattern because I am constantly remaking the same thing (
Since McCall’s M7445 pant pattern released last year, I have not been able to get enough of this wide leg pant. I have blogged about it many times (see
With that said, let’s talk about today’s look…
I have altered the pattern slightly. For this particular post, I decided to lengthen the leg and ditch the pockets. Doing so allowed me a slightly different look that I really love and by skipping the pockets, it made it a bit faster to throw together before I headed to London earlier this month. YES, I made them for my trip and sadly, no, I never got a picture in them – it was a business trip for my husband and discovery trip for me – it was truly AMAZING.
But back to the pattern alterations, it super simple…
- Cut out your pant pieces, you will take the side front and front leg.
- Align the pieces together, pin the pieces together or retrace the pant and continue to sew the pant together and ditch all instructions for the pocket. I lined up those small circles so to make sure that the pant aligns with the pocket pattern piece.
As much get I love the pocket, I also really enjoy pant without! Additionally, I look forward to having the opportunity to add other pocket details in the future! So…. if you haven’t given McCall’s M7445 pattern a try, I would jump on it! I saw many people in London wear this similar look in plaid and deep maroon, and I plan on making more for this season.
So tell me what you think, did I get an “A+” in your fashion notebook? Have you ever altered a pattern to get rid of design details? or add design details? And do you ever get so obsessed with a pattern that you have to make a bunch of times just to get it out of your system?
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a glamorous day!
