Pants of Gold

Hello, friends! It’s been a while! Now that it’s the very end of November, and December is literally staring us in the face it is time to start thinking about the holidays! And this year, I am super into the metallics. Hence, my latest sewing adventure: gold metallic jogger pants. Ohhh yes. I have been pondering these for a little while. Ever since I stopped in a local resale shop to try on these fabulous metallic pants that were on the mannequin in the window, only to discover they absolutely did not fit me. Once myΒ  shiny pants dream was crushed, I decided the only other option would be to make my own. And I wanted them to be super comfortable. I also wanted them to be a pair that I could snazz up with some heels, a clutch, and lipstick…or wear a little more casually with some fun sneakers.

For this post, I opted for the more casual look. But come December and all the holiday festivities that await, I just may have to give them a fancy styling upgrade.

I used metallic knit fabric from Mood (# 317282), and McCalls pattern #7610. I found the fabric to be suppper slinky to work with. At times, it was a little frustrating, but nothing a little interfacing and patience couldn’t fix. ;)

I made this necklace from a tool tag. My grandpa was a car mechanic, and I found this gem stashed away in one of his old tool boxes. There’s more where that came from on my Etsy page.

Blazer: Anthropologie (a while ago); Shoes: Target

Stay tuned for more holiday metallics projects–coming your way! ;)

What are you excited to wear for the holidays??
