Ikat Cigarette Pant - Simplicity 1371

Hey Everyone!
I'm coming at you with another pictorial.
I had come across this fabric in Wally World but decided to get the technicolor chevron instead.
Then one Thursday night I was watching Lip Sync Battle and was Tracee Ellis Ross and Anthony Anderson battling it out and I almost jumped through the roof when I saw the outfit she had on..
That girl has a body for days, but the pants made me think about the Ikat I saw at Wally World weeks before. You all already know what I did the next morning after I dropped the girls off at school. 
Yes, Wally World here I come..

I know the fabric isn't exactly like her pants but it reminded me of them and that's all I needed to get by.

My inspiration was Tracee Ellis Ross on the Lip Sync Battle last week. 
I knew I had the pattern because I  made these pants before.
If only I could find that sheer fabric top.

When I made these before I heard that they fit funny, so what I did was cut up a size bigger.
But when I tried them on, they were extremely too big. I had to cut them down alot.
So this time I stayed true to the pattern size and they fit perfectly.
They actually gave more of a slimming effect.
Child, I put on some heels and pranced all in the mirror.

Pieces all cut as usual.
I choose not to cut out the waistband because I wanted it a little wider that the pattern suggested. 

I'm not going to bore you with all the details.

Pocket all done.

Pant all sew together.

View of the pocket..

Waistband interfaced and ready to be sewn on.

Looking good.

Now I need a zipper.
Is it just me or do you love colorful zippers?

I love my zippers to make statement.
My zipper was too long, so I had to cut it.

Pant on dressform, I know the zipper isn't perfect but I love it anyway..

I think it took me longer to cut the fabric out than to actually sew the pant.. 

I know this for sure, I will be making more in lot of pattern fabrics.

Inspired Faux Leather Square Obi Belt

Hey Everyone!!! Today, I'm coming at you today with an accessory an Obi belt to be more specific. I've been obsessed with Loewe's Wide Obi Belt since I've seen it on one of my favorite Youtubers.  As some of you all already know, I love to recreate designer fashion but give a twist to it.
