My newest pant suit is made out of a two sided denim bought at Goodman Carlyle at7282, Rue Saint Hubert in Montreal two years ago.This was a "find" as far as denim goes,IMO.
The pattern is one I've made twice before ( here ) and is so much fun to make up because of all the top stitching possibilities! It's Vogue 1055 by Adri, now out of print.
I decided to make the jacket reversible. I used flat felled seams on all the seams. This was a lot of work but was really worth all the extra effort. More details at Diana's Sewing Lessons.
I had planned on using a dark taupe top stitching thread but because I didn't have enough of it without making a trip to the city to get some,I used what I had on hand,a light taupe which came off looking white. Oh well! I used a darker taupe regular polyester in the bobbin and it is almost invisible on the print side which is what I intended. Both threads are Gutterman.
I agonized about how to hem my jacket, but in the end, I just turned it twice and top stitched.The contrast is quite cute, don't you think?
The skinny jeans are a combo of V1234 and McCall's 7890. I agonized which side of the fabric to use but in the end,the plain side won out but with floral accents here,
Another shot in downtown Montreal. I love Montreal !
An at home shot on the reverse side with a denim pencil skirt already in my wardrobe.

I'm really happy with this outfit! My husband gave me all kinds of compliments on this one. I'm always happy when he really likes what I make!
I hope you've found time to sew too these past weeks. If not, remember that when you retire a whole sewing world awaits you!
