Why:
One trend I noticed a lot of during NYFW were red pants. Whether they were wide legged or skinnies, they were always this vibrant shade of tomato red.  AND I HAD TO HAVE THEM! I’ve seen a lot of great looking pairs for sale online, but pants are something I like to try on before I buy.  On my checklist: length, wide leg, high waist.

I’ve never made a pair of fitted trousers before, so I thought this would be my perfect opportunity. I scoured the pattern books (there’s no way I’d try to draft my own) and found Simplicity Pattern 2562 which promised to have an ‘amazing fit’.  First I made a muslin mock up just to see if there were going to be huge adjustments. Luckily- there were none!  (One side note - pattern sizes are drastically different from store sizes. Always make sure to read the measurements before you cut your pattern. I’m a 12 in patterns/4 in store pants.) 

Now, how about this outfit?  I really like color blocking warm shades of orange, red and pink together (See here, here and here), but I knew I’d need to attempt to tone things down a little with a tailored black blazer.  I absolutely love the way this outfit turned out.  As we turn the corner into Spring I plan on re-hemming the pants to work with my spring shoes.  And I love the pattern so much, I already have my second pair cut and ready to sew!

So… what do you think? Will you be wearing red pants this Spring?
