Trend: Denim Shirts

6:30 PM

My red pants are Vogue 1039.

This was my movie night look. My red pants have quickly become a staple in my wardrobe. And since I was going to a chilly movie theater, I grabbed my denim shirt. I was going to make one, but I happened to see the one I'm wearing in DKNY on DEEP discount. It would have cost more to make it.

But here are the patterns that I probably would have picked from:

  1. One of my faves! I have several in the closet and wear them till they are thread bare. I find I always buy them because I can't find the right weight denim to make my own. Any suggestions?

  2. No Bunny, I haven't found any fabric either. That had been a problem. I bought some shirt weight chambray but it was lighter than what I wanted. But if I find any, I'll post.

  3. I might have a solution-purchase 1/8 of a yard of the lightest weight denim you can find and wash it. There is often so much sizing/starch/whatever in denim that what you feel on the roll is very often a much lighter weight than it seems at first touch.

  4. ooops-didn't finish that one! LOL!

    Anyway, once you've found a good weight you can go back and purchase your yardage.

  7. I love the red pants. Went to our favorite store (Gail K) purchased some cotton rayon spandex to make a pair. They didnt have red. I selected royal blue. BTW don’t you love your hair?

  8. I'm also going to make a pair of skinny pants in royal blue. And I want a pair in bright yellow too. And possible a nice wool skinny trouser in fucshia as well. I'm all about the brights this season.

    Yes! I'm loving my hair so much!

  9. Gorgeous Fabrics had a lovely 3 oz, no lycra, dark denim by a Japanese manufacturer that was "to die for". I only bought 3 yards and wish I'd bought 12. Maybe Ann can get more.
    Love your red pants!

  10. Thanks for the post. I have a cute denim shirt that I adore from a few years ago but I seem to struggle with wearing it. This gave me some ideas for an old favourite.

  12. I absolutely love denim shirts. They don't every go out of style. I had a poet style denim shirt years ago and if it hadn't gotten a stain on it, I'd probably still be wearing it. Thanks for the birthday wishes.
