My Favourite Favorite Tee and Skinnies

This is one of my all time favourite outfits so far.
I love the flowy-ness of the top combined with the slimness of the skinny pant. 
Plus, the shoes. 
I picked them up for $5 at the thrift shop.

I used Jocole's Skinny Pants pattern with yoga waistband. 
My fabric has no stretch at all and is a pretty thick/heavy-weight denim so I did have to sew a narrower seam allowance.  
It is from here.

I don't have a picture of it, but I added some fun top stitching to the back pockets and actually sandpapered it a little to make it look a little worn. Just a little. 

The top is Patterns for Pirates' Favorite Tee in a lovely rayon/spandex from Water Tower Textiles. It's available here.
One thing I'd take into consideration next time with this type of fabric is that rayon doesn't have as much recovery as some of the other knits I use so the neckband can be pulled down quite easily by little baby hands. 
But. the top is super comfortable and great for summer as it's so airy and light. 

I did raise the neckline a bit but that was the only mod I made. 
I want to try some more of the options on the Favorite Tee such as the curved hem, and I'd love to make some more in this style as well.
