I am a FAN of Madras plaid. I love it, love it, love it. Thing is, when something isn’t on trend you don’t see it around as much. And that sucks because it doesn’t mean it’s not in style.
However, when I was lurking around my local fabric store, I happened upon some non-campy looking Madras! EUREKA’S CASTLE!! So, I got some fabric and went to town on making some super dope wide leg palazzo pants. If you’re a seamstress or you sew, you know that completing a project is bittersweet because on one hand, it’s done, but on the other hand it’s like coming to the end of a binge-a-thon. There is this sick feeling in your stomach that is over. So, what do you do? You go to the fabric store and buy more. Madras is the original statement fabric so why not make two separate things with it? So that’s what I did.
The Short of it
I LOVE jumpers. I love summer but I also like layering so this madras jumper is everything for versatility. In the summer, you can wear it loose or belted.
Don’t like your arms? Throw a T under it. Trying to get away with a jumper and or madras for Casual Friday? Pair this puppy with a button up and some loafers… thank me later cute hipster light hearted librarian.
The Wide of it.
Just wear them already. Soo dramatic. Soo “see me”. Again, you just really cannot go wrong with a high waist, wide leg pant. Flattering for most figures, the waist cinches and creates curves and structure. The darting in the back is a godsend for accentuating backside. And the wide leg airy fabric makes it feel like you’re walking in an evening gown sans the hassle.
