DIY ankle-slit pants and cropped sweater

DIY ankle-slit pants and cropped sweater
When it comes to suits, I’m totally drawn toward more masculine dressing with bits and pieces of femininity like a peek of an ankle or a sliver of stomach which was the idea behind these pants.   Made with this light weight Italian poly blend from, this is a great fabric with a bit of stretch perfect for a slim fit.  This fabric is great for not only pants but would be beautiful in a fitted dress.   The pattern used for these pants is this Burdastyle downloadable  with the following alterations:

Added  a front ankle slit and removed the cuff
Added one back welt pocket

The sweater was made with this beautiful Thakoon sweater knit from  This fabric is an awesome 68″ long which enabled me to make a long and short sleeve version of this great top.

The pattern used for this sweater was this Burdastyle downloadable with the following alterations:

Removed 10″ from the bottom of the pattern
Cut the pattern 3x too small and used a 2″seam allowance for a fitted look.
