After getting off to a flying start with Me Made May I have to admit that I’ve FAILED (it got a bit obvious when I didn’t post any photos to Instragram yesterday…) I know I shouldn’t feel too bad about it but I do feel a bit bummed. The truth is that I couldn’t bring myself to wear another work skirt. I really wanted to wear pants. Which is kinda strange because I’m quite a skirt and dresses kind of person. Solution: Papercut Patterns’ Pleated Pants that’s a whole lot of alliteration!


This will be my first pair of pants EVER.

I think there’s a second glaring whole in my wardrobe – casual-ish wear. Like dresses that I can wear to work and then out that night and not have to go home and change in between – know what I mean? So I immediately had a look at my patterns and found two that I thought fit the bill – Vogue 1338 and Very Easy Vogue 8742 (now out of print) and cut them both last night. I don’t know what came over me but it must have been desperate because I usually take forever to cut out a pattern!


I even started sewing one of them. Gathers look so pretty.


Next up – some delicious merino Renfrews and maybe even a Hollyburn. I never know where my mind will take me next!

  1. I’m loving those pants! I’m also still working on my first pair of pants. A Burda pattern. It’s quite difficult and I don’t recommend it at all for first pants. But, those look attractive and not too difficult. Good luck with them, look forward to seeing how they turn out.


      1. Didn’t mean to scare you. I know Top Notch made them up too, maybe she had better luck. From what I’ve the read Thurlow’s are amazing, everyone raves about them.
