Vogue 8604!


I've had these pants finished for about a month now, but I am just now getting around to reviewing them. This is a very easy vogue pattern as given the rating per the Vogue pattern.  If my memory serves me correctly there were only two or three pieces; however, I am much too comfortable at the moment to go and check the pattern. Just trust me on this one, it's EASY! I made these pants up at the same time that I was jonesing for the clover pattern from Colette patterns. I have since purchased that pattern and have made two muslins, so hopefully I will have them complete in the near future.


Oh yeah! The hair,nope didn't cut it! Just having a little girly fun!

So, I used a poly- blend fabric from fabric mart fabrics. I opted to use an invisible zipper instead of  a regular zipper, that's all that I had on hand, and I love the smooth lines anyhow... I added 2 1/2 inches in length to able to wear this with heels and hem the pants the allotted length per the instructions. Umm, I believe that is it in terms of alterations, so to speak. I love the look of high waisted pants and skirts, but I am unsure if this is a look that I am most comfortable in... I guess because I never wear my shirts tucked in unless I have a cardigan or jacket, or in this case a vest on! I dunno, I guess I'm just crazy like that lol!

Paired with my vest from F21 and red top and my leopard print flats that my two year refers to as "mommy's cat shoes"!

I know you are probably saying, we want to see the back! Well, you can't because I didn't have my helper home to zip me all the way up to the top! Men, what would we do without them, right! But you are in luck I did happen to take pictures of the back just in case you were interested!


The back of the pants!

The pocket lining is left over lining from V8679 jacket!*side note* I will make sure
to understitch the pocket lining to the pants to prevent pocket gaping!

 Well, that's all for now! I'm trying to decide what I will work on this weekend, since this is a long weekend! What are your plans for the weekend sewing wise, or will you be taking it easy? I am undecided myself, so will see! Divas, be blessed and nothin' less and continue to stay fearlessly fierce!
