The 2020 Holiday Season left me feeling a little unmotivated to sew all the fun holiday clothes. I normally relish this season of sewing, enjoying all of the reasons to sew a little “frosting” and add a little extra sparkle and glitz to my everyday outfits. The number of holiday parties on my agenda this year was a hot zero, though, so glitz and glam just didn’t seem necessary. But these pants totally came through for what I needed for the holidays, and beyond!
I have this weird romantic fascination with big, billowy linen beach pants. Normally, in my head, they are white linen, but when I saw this “warm sand” color, I thought it would be perfect for my big beachy dream pants, but also a warm enough color that I might be able to extend the wear a little bit into autumn without looking super silly in my big white linen pants!
Was there ever a more perfect time for a matchy-matchy lounge set than in the season of social distancing and stay home orders? I would say no. So here I am, serving isolation chic.
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!
