Pants: DIY Simplicity 1167 | Blazer: old (similar) | Blouse: Trunk Club | Shoes: Steve Madden | Labels: Dutch Label Shop

I'm not sure I ever owned a pair of printed pants. So, when I ran across this stretch twill at Golden D'or Fabrics in Dallas, I swiped it up quickly! This fabric is an absolute dream to handle and it launders and presses extremely well. Be sure to give them a call to order the fabric!

This pattern is designed to be super fitted, but I wanted something a bit more roomy and office-appropriate, so I fit mine with a smidge bit of extra ease. 

Another thing that makes me super proud to sew my own pieces is placing my logo in my clothing. For a long time, I didn't add a label to my pieces. But there is an unspoken pride to be able to add a high quality label to the inside of something I dreamed up and created with my own two hands.

Dutch Label really adds that cherry on top for my pieces. I have to be honest and say that I stared at my label in my pants for an unnecessarily long amount of time.

I just remember the day I struggled making a pencil skirt and now I'm sewing my custom label in my own pants...PANTS!

What makes you feel that extra special sense of pride in your pieces?
