The weather has turned warmer and sunnier this week in the Maritime Provinces. For me, that meant a whole lot of weeding but I still sewed quite a bit of course.
I wasn't as keen to finish my rainproof jacket as I was when I started it thanks to the beautiful weather but I did finish quite a bit of it.I'll show you the finished garment next week for sure. I'm not intending to let this become a UFO!
I have another pair of cropped pants to show you which I made a couple of weeks ago. Here they are with a few details.
I simply laid the McCall's skinny jeans over the Betzina pattern and used above the crotch ofV7608 and tapered the legs from the thigh down using M5392 and cut them at about ankle length . These turned out just the way I had imagined them and I really like them a lot.
Here I'm wearing my new capris with another Today"s Fit piece, V1109 , blogged here. I love the way they fit.
The pattern is New Look 6648 View A.
The fabric is a somewhat sheer, stretchy and crinkled polyester from my stash . I love the batik-like mix of colours in this fabric.
This piece was super easy and quick to make. The band is ruched at the sides and must fit snugly for the right effect.
I think it looks Ok on me but is not my best look.This will probably be a once and only for this pattern. I have it out of my system now.
Here are the two pieces together.
