Vogue 1264 - Pink Cigarette Pants and Colorblocking!

8:30 PM

Project Details:

Pattern: Vogue 1264 - Anne Klein

Pattern Sizing: 6-20, I cut the 14

Description: B: Semi-fitted pants with tapered leg.
If I've sewn an Anne Klein pattern before then I don't remember. So we'll call this a first! I'm really loving this silhouette for pants. I could never really enjoy pants like these from RTW, but since I sew them up in every color (and I just may), I'm enjoying them now!

I decided to make another pair of bright pants. This time in pink. I found a nice bright pink bull denim at Jo-Anns. These pant are similar to the red pants I made last month. They both have side zips, but the waist is different -- simpler on these. I still had to lengthen the leg by three inches. But for these, I kept the same size leg width. And I really love the ankle slits.


These pants are pretty high-waisted. As in, they actually stop at your natural waist! How's that for a change? LOL And unlike the red pair, the waist fit perfectly. No gaping at all!
These are just really great fitting pants. I may make these again in a longer length. Hmmm... possible yellow or blue.

And since I had a great pair of brightly hued pants, I decided to do some colorblocking with my orange top, red belt and clutch. And I added a nude pump.

  1. Great pants and that color blocking is to die for! I'd love to wear cigarette pants, but being short and "hippy" has kept me away.

  21. Coming out of the woodwork to say that I love this outfit! Orange and pink is one of my all time favorite color combos. I've been dreaming of a pair of hot pink corduroys for fall lately. This may just make me try.
