Burgundy, wine, marsala? I really can’t tell the difference between these colors, but since marsala is the Pantone color of the year, I decided to go with that one for today’s post…lol Whatever you call it, I really love the color and decided to wear it head to toe with a bit of abstract floral as we try to usher in spring as I know many of you on the east coast are still experiencing snow and frigid temperatures. These marsala colored pants I actually made last year using New Look pattern 6216 and have been wearing them quite often as the color pairs well with so many items in my closet. Also they are super comfortable because of the elastic waist band. The only modification I made to these pants were increasing the length to accommodate my height and I omitted the drawstring. These pants are super easy to make and great for beginners. I know everyone is not a fan of elastic waist pants, but I personally don’t think the waist band matters when you can’t see it, as most of the time I wear my tops loose and flawy because my midsection is my problem area. These pants fit comfortably and don’t create any extra bulge or muffin top. I would say i will be making more of these in other colors, but I have been reading that this year will be more about wide leg pants and trousers, so I will definitely be attempting to make a pair of wide leg trousers in this beautiful marsala color as well as others first. Stay tuned for those!
