Modeling My New Summer Outfit or "Pink Pants-a--palooza"



Readers, my last Mood outfit of the summer is complete!

Click here to see it.

I know what you're thinking: wasn't that beige cardigan intended for Michael?  Yes, it was. But is it wrong to share your clothes with a similarly-sized loved one?  I think not!

If the pink fabric I made the pants from looks familiar, it should -- it's the same cotton canvas I used for Susan's pencil skirt.  (I even used a remnant of the blouse for my pockets.  Waste not, want not, I always say.)

I don't always remember to thank Michael for taking all my photos, but I do want to acknowledge his tremendous contributions over the years (for Cathy too).  I am tremendously fortunate to have someone around who's willing to pick up a camera at a moment's notice (or nearly).  Without him, it would be an endless stream of Instagram selfies.

I'm really love the beige cardigan (which is basically identical to the blue one I made last year) and I'm quite smitten with the pink pants as well.  In case you're wondering, I was inspired by these (below), from Steven Alan, both for the fit and the fabric.



Have a great day, everybody and think pink!

  3. Love the pants.

    Great photo shoot (good job, Michael - hope you get to wear the cardi sometime).

    Cape Cod? Lucky you - it's one of the places I'd like to visit some day.

    Spud.

  4. You're lucky to have Michael to help you out. My husband looks so pained when I ask him to take a picture that I've moved on to the self-timer. So great to see a preppy-inspired outfit that fits!

  5. I think this is the most impressive outfit you have made in a while. I really love the white shirt. And you drafted a pair of pants! Be proud. Those aren't just clothes. That's fashion.

  7. I used to see you as the Hughes Rudd of sewing, but with that flesh and physique in focus, you have me rethinking (pauses to audibly catch his breath - then on the exhale), EVERYTHING!

  8. oh, I LOVE this look! The new hat is fantastic, pants fit great, the white sleeveless shirt is quite va-voom and the bit of stubble gives just the right bit of rough edge.

    Have a fabulous vacation!
