Peter Piper didn't really pleat my plaid pants but I think I shall pick a peck of pickles anyways.
These are my lightweight wool pants inspired by the Ralph Lauren fall collection. I use the word "inspired" loosely because I really just copied them. I ordered the fabric a few months ago after seeing the pants on the Ralph Lauren website.
I used the pants pattern that I have adjusted and changed to fit perfectly every time. I love the pattern because it has a yoke and not a waistband. I also put a side zipper in this pair of pants.
I added an extra large pleat at the waist by redrawing the pattern on some grid paper. I traced one side of the pattern and then slid it over 3" and traced the other side.
The pants are navy and green, the buttons are black. I'm still not too sure about my button choice but I used what I had in my button drawer. I will wait a few weeks and if they still bother me, I will switch them.
I had the vest in my closet, given to me from someone who found it at a second hand store. I switched the buttons and I think it turned out to be a smart pairing with the pants.
A sharp look for a math teacher...
Yes. Especially if I wear my glasses and carry a yardstick!
