I was undecided about what to wear until I saw Angie's post today on the "Genie in a Bottle" ensemble. I had a pair of voluminous pants that I made several years ago, which were in the discard pile for the last few years. I made them, trying out a pattern, and only wore them a couple of times. They were very wide-legged, and looked like a long skirt until you moved in a way that showed the distinct legs. I decided to try tapering the legs to make them look more like pants, and I ended up wearing them today. They are still not a color I want to keep around, so I will be donating them. But I think I will make the pattern again, using the tapered leg modification. What do you think? Worth another go in a color that is better for me?
I would like to have tried a better top with them, but this was what I could come up with that had the same shade of blue. It's a mauve and multi-colored floral t-shirt, which I wore semi-tucked.
The outfit (worn for a day off, shopping and lunch with a friend): Cobalt blue knit genie pants (made by me); mauve and multi-colored floral cap-sleeve t-shirt (made by me); stone denim jacket (French Dressing Jeans); taupe lace-up low block-heeled sandals (P. Monjo); cream and taupe hobo bag (Fossil).
I look forward to any thoughts or suggestions you'd like to share.
