Mood Style: Slim Ankle-Slit Pants and Crop-Top Sweater

When it comes to suits, I’m totally drawn to more masculine dressing with bits and pieces of femininity, like a peek of an ankle or a sliver of stomach, which was the idea behind these pants. They’re made with MoodFabrics.com’s lightweight Italian poly blend, a great fabric with a bit of stretch perfect for a slim fit. This fabric works well not only for pants but would be beautiful in a fitted dress.

The pattern used for these pants is this Burdastyle downloadable, with the following alterations:

- Added  a front ankle slit and removed the cuff
- Added one back welt pocket

The sweater was made with this beautiful Thakoon sweater knit from MoodFabrics.com. This fabric is an awesome 68″ long, which enabled me to make a long and short sleeve version of this great top.

The pattern used for this sweater was this Burdastyle downloadable with the following alterations:

- Removed 10″ from the bottom of the pattern
- Cut the pattern 3x too small and used a 2″ seam allowance for a fitted look.
