The Pants are Done

Item number two in the wardrobe was finished last night but since I had to go back to my day job today...I didn't have time/feel like taking pics...

So front - jacket and pants together:



Back of jacket and pants:



With this black dress from this post:



Oh and a construction picture of the pants with a half lining inserted to help alleviate the wrinkling:



I'm definitely going to work on the dress I just added to the collection this weekend...it's a little something different and funky...will probably have to be worn on Casual Fridays only...but it's so me...and after 20 months of making seriously corporate clothing...I am definitely injecting a little me into my wardrobe.

More later...

  4. Absolutely stunning! The pants are wonderful and I love the change-up that happens when you don the dress with the jacket! Keep going...

  5. Lovely pants! I was wondering though if you could recommend a book or link that shows how to line a garment, (especially something with darts and other types of things)? I notice a lot of your things are lined, but I haven't found very many useful links that show how to do it other than with skirts. Any advice? Thanks in advance!

  6. Carolyn, that is one smart looking outfit. I love how you are adding some flair to your "corporate" look. I'm sure you're getting noticed more, in a good way, of course.

  7. Those pants look so smart! Great with the jacket.

    Looking forward to seeing the dress to refresh ourselves with the "real" Carolyn :)

  17. Love the pants and jacket. Those shoes look pretty awesome, too!

  18. Those pants are - in typical Carolyn fashion - fabulous! I love the look of the jacket with the pants, but I really love it with the dress. Can't wait to see the new "non-corporate" dress that's been percolating along.

    I'm also very glad to hear that you aren't working so much - if you finished the pants on a weeknight. g

  19. Just had to comment on this blog because I have been a 'fan' of your blog for the past four months. I love your creative ideas with sewing. This particular blog entry inspired me to do some sketches of my own to start sewing again in the fall. :-) Thank you for your inspiration.

  20. Your entire ensemble is fabulous and looks great on you. Would you mind explaining how you lined your pants. It is difficult to tell in the pictures, but is the lining hanging loose inside, but just to below the knees, or is the lining sewn into the seams? I wanted to try this, but was worried about show through. Thanks.

  21. As everyone says, that ensemble is awesome. You do the details that make or break an outfit! Love the wide leg pants, and esp their length! Black and khaki is a fabu, sophisticated color combo. Wonderful job!

  22. Carolyn, stunning as usual! I love the chic pants/jacket combo. Your choice of accessories is perfect. The jacket/dress combo is nothing short of a knock-out look! You look fabulously chic and tres corporate, but in a very CEO way! I always love to see what you come up with. You are such an inspiration to me. Once I'm done with my move, I have a very "corporate" wardrobe planned with some gorgeous charcoal double knit with some black, white and gray accents. I can only hope that it will be half as chic as yours.

  23. Lovely and professional! Flattering and chic.

  24. Nice jacket; I think it looks especially good with the black dress. The shorter sleeves are nice for spring/summer wear, and I'll bet the width makes them a bit cooler and more comfy in the heat!

  25. You are so clever. Your ensemble is beautiful and inspiring. With each outfit you complete its hard to imagine how your next outfit can exceed it. You don't disappoint. Wow!

  26. I love both outfits! The jacket is gorgeous and very versatile and you look terrific in the pictures! You got the color right too, since both pants and jacket will coordinate with many other garments!

  27. I love these ensembles and am excited to see what you are working on next.

  28. Great looking ensemble - love the half lining in the pants too. I never think of that, so thank you for the inspiration.
    The jacket shaping is very flattering on you.

  29. Lady, You are too sharp! I'm catching up on blog reading and reading yours is like reading a "How to be Fabulous" plus "Sewing" book. You are "Vogue-ing".
