HELLO, I MADE MYSELF A PAIR OF HIGH-WAISTED HALTER / MONO LEGGINGS. Are you familiar with the original monokini? It’s that, but these are pants, and I wear them with shirts. I stitched these up on Saturday, wore them Saturday night, Sunday and now today, Monday.
I’ve paired them with high-top sneakers and lucite-heeled scuba booties, and both seemed to work pretty well. I think that’s the definition of high-low dressing.
Two out of two self-obsessed sewing bloggers agree.
Oh hey guess what, I didn’t wash my hair, it just looks really bad today.
This blog is basically just morphing into a Double Mint gum commercial. [Wrigley’s: call me.]
They’re made out of a double-weight, cable knit stretch, which is super bonkers and also PERFECT. Sup.
Straight talk: I need to make some shirts that can actually be tucked into these pants without wrinkling along the waistline. For now, I’ll just contort my torso when people are looking.
Already planning a pair in stretch sequins. GOODBYE.
