DIY Slouchy Pants and Sweatshirt

Nothing for me is more comfortable than a pair of slouchy pants and a sweatshirt topped off with a pair of comfy heels.  When not in my loved pencil skirts, this is one of my fallback favorites.  The pants were made with leftover material from this look, using this Burda pattern I previously made these with.  The only changes made were to the pleats which I opted for inverted pleats, and elastic around the ankle.

The top was made with my beloved Vogue V8840  pattern which have made so many apperances like here here here and here  and this Oscar de la Renta wool crepe from Mood which I quilted.      The following pattern alterations were made:
– Cut the back and front piece of the pattern piece 13″ from the top which created four pattern pieces.
    Quilted the front top pattern piece
– Removed the darts from the pattern in the front and back
– Removed 3″ from the top sleeve and added 10″ to the bottom sleeve
– Created a key hole in the back of the neck for easy removal
– Added elastic around the waist, and cuffs.
– Top stitched the seam between to top and bottom half of the front
