Pant Inspo and the James Launch

Lets talk about pants.  All too often they are an after thought in our wardrobe. So, on the heels of launching my first pant pattern, I thought I'd share some easy pant inspirations that can bring your pants from boring to looking like a designer piece.

Top stitching is always a great way to add detail.

 

Or playing with contract colours... Look at those oversized pant cuffs too!

pants side seam details

Sometimes, something as simple as a grosgrain ribbon on the side seam...

 

pants side stripes

Or, simply adding a few sport side stripes and playing with their widths.  You can do this using different colour and widths of grosgrain as well.

 

I hope these few images have got your creative juices flowing and have you rethinking your pants.  Keep your eyes open this week for the launch of my James Knit pant.  Designed specifically for the heavy pointe knit to give you all the comfort of a legging but the look and coverage of a pant.  Win, win, right?  If you're on my email list you'll be the first to know... and the only one to have a discount on the launched pattern.

 

Happy Sewing!

  • Great insperation picks! The top stitching and the inner contrast section would be something I could try.
