Get ready, because all things flared is a dominating trend for Fall 2016. I'm rocking this trend with Vogue 8945 and New Look 6459.
I previously made Vogue 8945 a couple of years ago. It's a fabulous dress pattern that's been around for a while, but it's perfectly on trend this season. And this pattern is perfect as a dress or as a modified top.
These exaggerated sleeves are simply to die for. If you haven't been sleeping under a rock, you have seen that current fashion-forward drama is pointing towards cuffs that are as wide, some as waistbands. This is a great white top that I've been enjoying for a while. I originally made it for a dressy occasion to wear with guipure lace skirt. And I've even toned it down with jeans here. So it's extremely versatile.
My cropped flared pants are another iteration of New Look 6459. I made them in a white suiting fabric over the summer. I reached for those pants so much that I had to make another pair in black.
The fabric type is also trending for Fall. Jacquards, brocades and damask is really hot right now. This fabric is Nicole Miller Floral Jacquard in Caviar from Joann Fabrics. It's one of the priciest fabrics I've run across in the fashion fabric section. It was $30/yard (I bought it during a 60% coupon deal!). And it's very luxurious. Nicole Miller is the best thing to happen to Joann's.
I love the fabric. I love these pants. And I'll be wearing these all season!
