Sewing My Spring Capsule///Pietra Pants

I have my second piece of my Spring Capsule Wardrobe to share with you today!! I’ve already started wearing these on the regular and I love how they turned out. Here’s a look at the second bottom in my capsule.

The Capsule Piece: The spring capsule from Everyday Style comes with a color palatte, but if you don’t like it she offers some great tips on how to change it up. Since I am pretty clear in what my colors are, this was an easy one to do. I swapped out the color navy for this rust/cinnamon/terracotta color that I love and have been wearing as a neutral. The capsule called for a pair of navy pants so I made these instead!

The Pattern and Fabric: This pattern is one I have made before and I wear all the time. These are the Pietra Pants by Closet Core patterns and I made them with this lovely lyocell twill from Melanated Fabrics. I love tencel and lyocell twills (essentially the same thing, different brands) for drapey pants. They are heavy enough to wear well and hold any details like pockets, but have a beautiful drape and easy feel.

Details: I made version B, the tapered leg, in a straight size 8. I wanted this version because I thought it would be easier to swap out shoes- booties, flats, sneakers even- and wear into the summer. I made one stupid error where I put the pockets on the wrong way, but I don’t know if it will matter to anyone but me.

How I plan to wear it: With all the shoes! I experimented a bit and I think I love these pants with a lot of different shoes. I also loved playing with this color and lightening it up with my springy palatte. These pants have been on heavy rotation! I love the flat front with elastic back, the perfect pant for easing back into the real world…
