Butterick 4807 Peacock Wide Legged Pants McCall 7193 Knit Top

I threw my Mom a Birthday Party last month.  I had a peacock theme in mind but I didn't want to overdo it and make it feel too much.  So I thought besides a few small decorations with peacock feathers and a little stack of cute peacock napkins I kept it simple.  Then I had to make somthing to wear that quietly said "peacock".  Everyone loved the outfit and I wish I had remembered to take a photo before the festivities started.  But life gets in the way sometimes.

On the top row is Myself & Girl M, next row down is my Mom's SIL & her DIL, next row down is my Favorite Aunt (Mom's Sister) and Lady K (my DIL), bottom row is My Mom and her DIL.  

Mom enjoyed being pampered for the day, and is still recovering from a fall in May that resulted in her breaking her ankle just a month after finishing her last radiation treatment for breast cancer for the third time.  She needed a day to know how much she is loved!

I made the McCall 7193 in a ITY knit again.  This top is classy looking and so very easy to whip up in a hurry.  The blueberry color is perfect with the crazy print of the the wide legged pants I made.  

For the pants I made up Girl M's favorite wide legged pants from the Butterick 4807.  I did have to take in the seams by 1" for a little slimmer fit.  I also shortened the length by 1" so I wouldn't be walking on the hems.

Mom was so surprised I showed up wearing PANTS!  My only pair of pants.  Then my Favorite Aunt (Mom's Sister) showed up wearing capri's.  I've never seen my Aunt in pants!  She was sooooo cute!
Miracles happen every day!

I really do love this outfit but I'm not sure where I would wear it out to.  Maybe dinner?  It's kinda flashy & wild but it's tooooo cute!

Until next time................



  1. That's a great outfit. Perfect for you.

  2. That's a beautiful outfit! Sure, you could wear it out to dinner!

  3. Love the outfit. I'd wear it all the time in the summer! I don't think it's too flashy at all.

  4. Bonnie, the top and pants are a great combination! I am glad your mother enjoyed her day!!!
