Comments: Surprise, surprise, Hepburn pants again. I can't get enough of these babies - I just keep making them over and over. Hey, why reinvent the wheel?

I have made the top in the past as well. You'll notice that with this top I chose not to do the tie detail around the neck. Instead, I raised the neckline considerably to preserve my modesty. This required a very easy redraft of the rolled collar - I just made it shorter to fit the reduced neckline.

Conclusion: Another more casual, yet very work appropriate outfit.

P.S. I was getting bored with my usual poses, so I decided to do something different. Don't I look all fetching and come hither? ;)

you have definitely got the "come hither" look going on. I love to pretend like a super model and vary it up. I never LOOK like the models, but it is fun!

Love the changes on the shirt and nothing like a pattern you love.

Until I got to the last sentence I was thinking you looked more "Fashiony, Vogue Modelish"...where you going for come hither? :)

Great pieces...you are going to have an awesome work wardrobe come fall!

I agree with Carolyn - I didn't see come hither - but maybe your hubby did? Love the new hair (if it's not new it looks great)

Outfit - I love it. I wonder if I have that pants pattern. Can we see your butt? I just want to see how they fit in the back. g

You sure are working that pants pattern. When you are on to a good thing...stick to it. Funny I also had picked out this pattern to make.

Yes, you are very fetching and come hither. Those Hepburn pants, I think, were made with you in mind! You look great in them. Nice top too. You're making yourself a nice back to school wardrobe.

It's so nice to find a pant pattern that works for you. I find myself making the same one over and over again. The top is a great complement to this version.
