Unintentional Sweatpants: FAIL
Until recently, I had just one pair of pants in my wardrobe: outlet store jeans that I loathed but wore out of spite and necessity. Enter the StyleArc Elle Pant pattern and a fabric shopping spree.
This is the first pair I made, imagining dress pants that were "secret pajamas." Secret's out, y'all. These look like sweatpants and are about as flattering. It's my own fault for using ponte knit instead of the recommended stretch woven. Also, that ponte (which was not cheap), is already starting to pill!
These pants are never seeing the office, though I do wear them around the house and to the grocery store. Thank goodness my subsequent Elle pants weren't such a disaster. More on those later.
