Here I am, Miss Broken Record, with my *sixth* garment made with a Named Clothing pattern! (When you like a certain pattern company, well, I guess you like a certain pattern company.) What I thought I *didn’t* like, however, was this style of trouser. These are the Alexandria Peg Trousers from Named. But Naomi from Spare Room Style / @nommyjoybubble on Instagram suggested them to … Continue reading Named Alexandria Linen Trousers
An alternate title for this post could be: A Demonstration of How Much My Camera Sucks at Capturing the Colour Coral. That hot pink shirt that’s currently burning a hole in your retinas? It’s actually coral. And those large-scale floral pants that are also currently burning a hole in your retinas? Well, I have no excuse for those. That’s exactly how they look. I mean, … Continue reading Haute Skinny Pants and Plantain Tee
Pssst! Over here. Need something to take the edge off? Something that’ll make you feel great? I got what you need. I’m your pusher… And I’m pushin’ TERRY CLOTH. Lawdamercy, why didn’t anyone TELL me that terry cloth is heaven on earth? These pants caress my legs all day with millions of tiny soft loops that swish around in buttery-soft drapiness. Siiiiighhhhhh…. As soon as … Continue reading Mother’s Little Helper: Not-So-Secret Pyjamas
As I began cutting the fabric for these culottes, I knew I was either going to really hate the end result or really love it. My sewing projects lately have been leaps of faith: slightly strange patterns that I wouldn’t normally think I’d wear (yeah, culottes) and often paired with pretty bold fabric choices. (See my satin jogging pants as recent proof.) So it could … Continue reading Whole Lotta Cool Culottes
Still questioning the validity of satin ‘joggers’, although feeling pretty propped by all the encouraging comments on their debut post. Thanks for weighing in! Commenter Barbara J had a valid point when she wondered whether dressing them up with high heels was, y’know, a bit twee… ….so I thought I’d try styling them more casually, pairing them with a plain heather gray T-shirt and metallic … Continue reading K, What About This?
Alright, they’re not quite Hammer Pants per se, but these are definitely way outside of my usual trouser universe. The question is: should I wear them? I’m not sure what madness gripped my brain when I saw Burda’s “jogging pants in floral sequin fabric” and thought, “Good Idea!” — because, no. No. Nooooo. And then I saw this pretty satin fabric and thought “Jogging Pants!”, … Continue reading Look Who’s Wearing Hammer Pants
Your advice needed! I picked up this cardigan and these pants at Target a few days ago, and I’m pretty sure I did a fist pump while I was trying them on in the change room. Tuxedo-style ankle pants in colour-blocked black and white! [Fist Pump!] Colour-blocked cardigan in black and white and bright blue with groovy mesh on the back and sleeves! [Fist Pump!] … Continue reading Right on Target?
