A New Outfit

Being around other women who enjoy sewing,is one of the perks of my job.They often share the joy by giving.
This pattern is an OOP,Vogue 8092. It was given to me by one of my co-workers. I made this during a sew-in with my sewing friends. I made the pants(a longer version featured in a previous post) from Mccall's 5592 ,during our second sew-in. I wore both to work yesterday and I was cool and comfortable.

The top is made from a light weight linen blend, given to me by my friend and co-worker, Ebony. It is so comfortable and the folded drape hides some of my folds. :) The pants are twill with a bit of Lycra from Joann Fabrics.This is the second time making the pants and there will be many more.They have a fly front,side pockets,back yoke,and a contour waistband.I'll post pictures of the details later while I make a third pair.I think sewing may be the only way I can get a great fitting pair pants.

This outfit came out so well. I love the color combination. When we had our first sew in , you sewed it up so fast. But it came out nice. And oh my good, don't even get me started on the capris. They are so well made. I think you have something going with those pants. I see another class that you could do.

You look good! I want to see the details of those pants. It's so hard to find pants that fit well (sigh).
