I wanted to start the outfit project with my latest attempt at sewing: white pants! I actually started them quite sometime ago, so I would have a nice pair for the Brazilian Summer. Alas, work got the best of my time and now that we are in the thick of Fall (yes, it does get cold here), I managed to finish them.

So I give you my very summery look.

I decided for this pair to start from scratch, after a few very unfortunate trials with old patterns.

All the measurements taken...

... The instructions were followed, with a few adaptions.

And, Voila! The end result was a pretty nice pattern.

It turns out I miscalculated the length of the pants and the fabric, so the pants turned out a little short. :-( On the plus side, since I started the pattern I have lost weight :-)

And here is the end result....

Ok - I know, I know... I look really serious. I am working here on self-photography and all.

White Pants - Cotton - By Sam
Stripped shell - J. Crew
Red Jacket - Linen - By Sam (from an old pattern I had saved from my graduation project)
Shoes - MoB
Necklace - somewhere in 25 de Marco
