DIY Slouchy pants and off the shoulder top

DIY Slouchy pants and off the shoulder top
With fall right around the corner and cooler mornings, I can’t help but think about a fall wardrobe.  These drop crotch pants and off the shoulder top provide a great balance of sporty and sexy.  In addition to the perfect fall colors, the comfort level with this look is unbeatable.

The top was made using a cotton sateen by Theory.  This color is sold out but another great color is available here at  This is a great rich feeling fabric that would also make a fantastic fitted dress due to the weight and slight stretch.  The green fabric on the sleeve bottom was fabric I had in my stash.

The pants were made using this olive twill from  This fabric is great for medium weight pants.  It’s extremely soft with a slight sheen and uber comfortable.

The top was made with a self drafted pattern available here with the following alterations:

-Added 9″ to the length of the sleeve
-Added a 6″ color block at the sleeve
-Added two rows of .25″ elastic around the neck and sleeves
-Removed the straps option

The pants were made with a self drafted pattern that will be available on my next week.

    I love Theory, and those pants are very chic. Do you recommend drop crotch pants for a petite woman like me? I'm only 5' tall!
