WIW: corduroy pants

These pants used to fit me perfectly, except for the dreaded gaping at the back. I almost never used to wear them, because they would keep slipping and sliding! Finally got them altered and I have to say, it is the best €12 I have ever spent - they fit so well now! :D

Also added a pic of my coat and my newly thrifted Manoukian scarf, it is super cosy and feels really luxurious :)

P.S. I'm planning to sell my leather skirt, since I feel like it isn't 'me' somehow. If anyone wants it, just PM me and we can work something out! FYI, it has a 13.7'' waist i.e., a 27.4'' waist when doubled and it is definitely highwaisted. If not, up on Ebay it goes! :)

    You look fab! I just love the colors of your outfit, they suit you perfectly and look so nice together. And I love your coat!

    It's really astonishing how much better you feel in pants that fit, don't you think? I have the back gaping problem too in most of the pants I try on.

    rute: Thank you :)

    Astrid: Aww thanks! And I agree, I would have paid double just to feel this perfect fit! I continue to have this problem too and if I size down to avoid it, the jeans don't fit my tummy. So my only option is alteration!

    You're learning a YLF lesson that I've yet to explore -- the value of alterations. And the yellow is so warm and fresh with your skin. Lovely choice!

    Beth Ann: I used to alter pants only for length and suffer through the gaping at the back, but now I've learnt to start altering and I suspect I'm going to be at the tailor a lot! Thanks :) this is more mustard than yellow, so it works! :)
