Party Pants!

I reviewed the Jacket for this outfit a few weeks ago. Here is the entire ensemble, which I wore to a charity event last weekend.

I felt wonderful wearing my head to toe look with lots of metallic! I constructed the palazzo pants with Vogue 8955. They took 4 yards of gold lame fabric that is actually a stable knit, and very light and liquid. 2-pieces-FMwebThe pattern was relatively easy to sew, but the waistband must fit perfectly. Tight enough to hold up so much fabric, but too tight and it would be uncomfortable for a 4-hour event. I couldn’t find a pattern for the top that I envisioned so I drafted my own!2-pieces-DMweb It took two muslins to get it right but in the end I was very happy with the lines. The entire outfit was comfortable and glamorous at the same time.2-pieces2-DMweb
