Two Ease Into Fall Pieces

The first week of Sept.,I started sewing for fall. I made the two pieces in this post and then got all caught up in sewing for the Mini Wardrobe Contest at Pattern Review. I neglected to take photos of today's pieces until today.
The top was loosely based on 

Here it is.


I lowered and widened the neckline to make it somewhat resemble a boat neck which I love but am too chesty to wear .


I added a pocket using this top from Coldwater Creek as my inspiration.


I shortened the sleeves, and added a cuff and a bias trim .


The cropped pants are another version of
                                            Silhouette Patterns  #3400 ( Three Piece Yoga Pant)
                                          I added two pockets with button and top stitching details.
                                          I also added an invisible zipper to these yoga pants to make
                                                        them easier  get  over my hips.



Oh MY!! Look at that lint!

The fabric is  a stretch cotton sateen.
                                              And can I say that I absolutely love this pattern .
                                        All the pants I've made with this pattern are so flattering.

                                       I'm wearing this outfit right now and it's become a favorite.



Next time I'll show you a couple of the pieces I've made for the above mentioned contest one of which is the cardi from V8819  which turned out really well!

I do hope you found time to sew this weekend and thank you for visiting my blog!

Diana your outfit looks wonderful! I can"t believe that is the Silhouette yoga pants pattern. I love that pattern too and will have to try to make changes to it as well.
Would be nice to run into you at Fabricville :) it has been so long since I've seen you. You look amazing!

What a cute outfit! I love stripes and I, too, love Peggy's yoga pant pattern. I've lost count of how many times I've made it or variations of it.

Smart changes you made to these garments. The pocket on the top is really cool, and the stitching on the pants is an eye-catcher. Really cute outfit!
