Natural Bull Denim Persephone Pants

I have wanted these natural denim Persephone Pants for SO LONG you guys. I am constantly scrolling through the Persephone Pants hashtag on Instagram and making lovey eyes at all of the awesome pairs that all the other sewists in the world have made. I love the interesting balance of the tapered waist and the wide leg pant, and I’ve been so intrigued by the way this pattern comes together – no side seams!

July Monthly Make My Stash – Wissew Camelia (Maxi!) Dress

June Monthly Make My Stash – Tropical Chelsea Dress

So I’ve been a little behind on showing you what I’ve been making, but I HAVE been making! And honestly, I’ve really been in my element with my me-made items lately – I am very much a summertime girl, and if you’ve been following me for any length of time you’re probably aware that flirty, feminine silhouettes and bright colors and bold florals are some of my favorite things. This dress (and many of the things I’ve made recently) has ALL of that!!
