This pattern flowed very nicely until I got to the pockets of the jacket. I am still not sure what happened, but they ended up too large for the jacket, hung down past the bottom edge. I lengthened the pants as I usually do, along the crotch, and at the hem. The zipper is in the back. These pants don’t have a waistband and sit on the hips. If you haven’t worn a pair of pants like this, I encourage you to give them a try. They are very comfortable, and, take much less time to make.
I made the suit out of red pique (a favorite fabric of mine) and it’s fun to wear. I recommend the pants as a standard pant pattern, and the jacket is very versatile.
When done, consider accessorizing with fine, handcrafted jewelry from For, Women of Substance.
Photos of the sewn clothing are on my Pinterest site. Please click the above link and it will take you there.
I should note, the photos are of clothing that have been worn and washed. I once found myself unemployed and a $64.00 dry cleaning bill that had to some how be paid before I could get my suits out for an interview. I swore then that if the item could not survive the wash, gentle cycle or normal, I was not going to buy it or make it.
Plus, we surround our skin with enough chemicals, we don't need to voluntarily add more.
I have many interests, but have to admit sewing is not one of them. I sew only because I like to wear clothes that fit. Thus, my goal when I approach any sewing project is to get it done well enough that it is wearable.
Most of the time I reach that goal. I hope this blog will help open up new fashion vistas for you to explore.
