HELLO, I MADE THESE HIGH-WAISTED FAUX LEATHER (PLEATHER) PANTS. They are the first pair of tailored pants I’ve made for myself in a long time that have given me this much pleasure, and I have big hopes for them. Please don’t let me down, faux leather (pleather) pants.
I pieced together a couple of vintage patterns to get the perfect rise and the perfect cut throughout the leg, and then I spent two complete days sorting out the fit, because sewing pants is very easy, but FITTING PANTS IS A GODDAMN NIGHTMARE.
Especially when you’re working with leather in the color … CAMEL.
Dolphin hem is my own.
Moves are my own.
Because it’s fake, this leather is semi-stretchy, and miraculously does not hurt my stomach. Just kidding, everything hurts my stomach. I purchased it to re-cover our dining room chairs, but I changed my mind, of course, so …
You can see a bit of the pockets peeking out from the side, so I lined them in pink grosgrain. Guys, I’m worth it.
And so are these pants. GOODBYE.
P.S. Will look great with my Fringed Sleeve Sweater.
