High-Waist Pallazzo Pants

Pallazzo Pants were so popular way back when and they have came right back around again.  Depending on the fabric that you choose, they are very light, comfortable, and they definitely make a fashion statement.

The pattern that I chose to make my Pallazzo pants was McCall’s M6515. I’m so sorry. I totally forgot what type of fabric I used for my pants, but it is light, it has a lot of movement, and it feels silky against my skin.

These are great for day and night.  You can wear them to work with a button up, a fitted top, or a turtle neck.  If worn at night, a crop top would make it more appropriate for dancing at a club, hanging out with the girls, or a bar. However you wear it, keep it sexy.

Fall Jewel Tones

This weekend, my BFF and I went to the Virginia Fashion week’s main event.  We had a ton of fun. We even vlogged about the event which I will be posting on my YouTube channel soon.  Last year we went to VA Fashion week and purchased our outfits. This year we decided to go all out and sew our outfits.

So, this is my BFF, Asia. She just started sewing about 2 months ago.  I went with her to purchase her first sewing machine and we brought it home and I taught her the basics of sewing. If you need those sewing tips/lessons, check out my YouTube channel

.  You can tell that she has been practicing because her DIY High-Waist Pallazzo pants came out great.  The pattern that she chose was Burda’s 7195.  She did change the waistband and made it wider for a more “High-waist” effect.

vafw1vafw4If you ever get the chance to go to a fashion show, GO! Go with your girlfriends.  You’ll have an amazing time and it’s so interesting to see the designer’s outlook on what they feel fashion should look like.
I will be posting highlights of the Virginia show in the next post. Until then, thanks for stopping by!  Share this post to inspire those that are beginners at sewing.

Home Sweet Home

So my entryway was bit boring so i decided that I wanted to make aa easy custom wall art that would match the rest of the decor in my home. While scrolling Pinterest, I came across this one. It was love at first site!homesI changed it up a bit by adding a 3D effect to the  word “SWEET” and I made the same word a metallic finish. To make it as bold as the one above I am in search for the perfect at local thrift stores or yard sales taht I can paint gold. I think that’ll tie it together.

You can make it your own by choosing to do a phrase or children’s names.  Have fun with it and no matter what you decide, I’m sure it’ll look great.  Remember to follow me on Instagram @Cheapbutchic to see what I am doing behind the scenes and please support my channel by subscribing.
