Plaid

I bought this fabric yesterday and instantly knew I wanted to make a pair of trousers out of it. The only thing was that I'd never ever made trousers before and I had to find a step by step guide to help me measure out my own pattern pieces (which took longer than the actual construction). They turned out perfect which I am still in shock about as there's almost always something that goes wrong if I'm trying out a new style. If you're interested in buying them, I've put them in my shop here. I didn't have a top to go with them so I quickly made this leather look shirt to show in this post (but I'll probably use the fabric for something else later on). And of course not forgetting my amazing new heels from Office.

  17. Oh goodness me, those pants are amazing. I tend to associate the plaid print with winter and fall, but you've managed to transition it brilliantly to the warmer weather.
