If you don’t know this term, you’ve been living under a rock.
The Color Purple is one of my all time favorite movies. I saw it hundreds of times as a child, have the DVD and have seen the Broadway play TWICE. (once on Broadway with my mommy and grandmother – it was AMAZING).
I’ve been in a bit of a sewing slump lately and to get a kick start back into the swing of things I decided to make some pants! I’ve been holding onto about 5 yards of this 4-way stretch knit (similar here) that I ordered from Girl Charlee Fabrics since the beginning of summer.
I chose to make McCalls Pattern M6514, View B. I made a similar pair, with wide legs that I absolutely LOVE! This is a great pattern that be worn several ways.
What I like about this pant is the front pleats, which don’t really show up in a busy fabric (note to self). This is perfect for a casual day.
You can wear these pants with flats or with heels.
Tip: The pattern is naturally long for my 5’5 frame, so I would suggest altering the length of this pattern as needed, if you plan on wearing flats… like me 🙂
Now that you’ve seen the pants, they do kind of resemble Miss Celie’s pants, right?
As soon as I put them on, I instantly thought….
So maybe I exaggerated a little, but this does make me want to watch The Color Purple… right now!
