Review: Simplicity 1887 | Ms. Fancy Pants!

6:45 PM

I've been seeing printed pants everywhere -- on all of the style bloggers; as a favorite in street style fashion and all over Pinterest.  I've seen them in wild animal prints, bright florals patterns and bold abstracts.  So I was inspired to try out this trend.

And a popular way  they're shown is with one of this season's biggest trends -- the peplum top.
I decided to use Simplicity 1887, view A -- sans elastic ankles.  I cut the size 16 and added 3 inches to the length.  I omitted the ties.  I'd envisioned wearing these specifically with this top so there was no need for the ties. I love that they have elastic in the waist.  That detail also puts these pants in the "pajama dressing" category.  Not really PJs, just as comfy though and also chic!  

Gratuitous close-up!

Wearing:  top: Vogue 8815: pants: Simplicity 1887; shoes: Nine West; bag: TJ Maxx.

  17. SO mad at myself! I just ordered some Simplicity patterns and knocked this one out of my cart last minute lol.

    Lovely as always Lady! Those pants look like they're a dream to wear. :) Your peplum look inspired me (went a little crazy on the fabric choice but it worked nonetheless)...maybe I'll take a crack at the print pant...hmmmm. :)

  18. Now I love that top. I wasn't too keen on it the first time you showed it, but this outfit really makes it look great and the fit looks better now. I guess it needed to be broken in. :)

    ReplyDelete
  19. Yeah, ummmm... I don't know what "broken in" means. Same person, same fit, same top. I guess everyone likes what they like! Thanks. :)
