Made by a Fabricista: High Waisted, Wide Leg Denim Pants!

Hi Fashionistas!!!

I hope you are having a wonderful 2016 so far! I just finished making my very 1st garment of 2016... and can I just tell you that I am in love with it?

I got this super yummy delicious Denim Sateen from Fabric Mart.. I got a total of 4 yards so I am hoping to get a nice skirt out of it as well :)


This fabric would make a very cute dress as well.. I have to try to get my hands on a bolt of this fabric..I think I could design an entire wardrobe out of this :) 



The fabric behaved BEAUTIFULLY! I am on vacation in California and didn't have access to all my professional tools. I used a domestic iron to press the seams while sewing and the fabric responded so well to heat and steam. I did not have a tailors clapper, but one wasn't needed.. The fabric was a pleasure to work with. 





I get so greedy when it comes to fabric. When I love a fabric, I want to make as many garments out of it as I can..  Wouldn't a dressy denim jacket be so nice with these pants?




The pants are quite high waisted. I considered lowering the wait by about half an inch but decided against it.. I stand 5 feet 4 inches.. and love a pair of pants that makes me look tall :) I used Burda 7122 for the pattern



I like my pants long. I like to show a little bit of that cute shoe while I walk or sit, but I like the pants long.. 

Yup... had to throw in that bollywood pose.. as always..


I love these pants so much more than the original pants I made in gabardine. These one stretch with me and allow me to eat a big lunch.. The fabric has a stretch.. and is super comfortable. 


That is it for now fashionistas!! See you soon  with me next sewing adventure. 

XOXO
