Cigarette Pants and the Atomic Bag

Hello everyone! Hope all is well especially after the earthquakes we've been having lately. I'm here to share another separates post because as summer draws closer I want to be able to mix and match my pieces.

This is the pattern I used, this pattern I have been searching for, for over a year now. I found a listing for it but the seller was just asking way too much and on a whim about a month ago I searched around again and I found another seller selling it for much cheaper and of course I snatched it up. I love these pants as well as the top but I mainly fell in love with the pants because I love high waisted pants and they are just so slim and sleek. I was only able to make the pants not the top since money has been tight.

And here are the pants, I used a cotton stripped denim I got on sale at Joann's. It is very softly and slightly sheer but not sheer enough to where it is inappropriate. I paired it with a sleeveless white turtle neck, a vintage head scarf as well as atomic lunch bag turned into purse that I'll shall shortly.

This is the atomic bag I purchased, it was actually a lunch bag but I decided it would get a better use if I turned it into a purse and it actually holds a lot I just have to be delicate with it.

Here is a better shot of it.


I plan on making more of these because these pants really show off my figure and it doesn't hurt that the day was very beautiful but very windy which my mom did not enjoy since the vintage dress we were taking pictures of was blowing every which way.

This is the vintage dress my mom was modeling. She is an avid vintage dress collector and we've been taking more and more pictures of her in these dresses so we can share them, in the future I plan on compiling them into a master post I hope to share with you all soon. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post :)

Ja ne everyone!
