Spring is just around the corner, and I am still obsessed with plaids! I wanted to officially end my journey with the color combination that originally lit the fire of plaids in my life this season. The fabric used for these pants is a poly novelty weave suiting found (HERE). I actually used the wrong side of this fabric because the lines seemed more in line with my taste (grainy and broken vs the other side)
I used Simplicity 8056/S0652 to create these pants. It is part of the Amazing Fit series and had alternate back pieces for different body types. I used the curvy option. Unlike many of my other projects, I created this garment as per the manufacturer instructions with one minor adjustment, which was added 3 inches to the length. The construction took a tad bit longer vs some of my go to slopers. The level of detail is not that far off from constructing jeans. I plan on converting this into a sloper as well for future jumpsuits/rompers and pants suits. The pattern also contained some great tips on interfacing and the waistband which also has facing.
I used my inseam as the dominant stripe for these pants.
My top is a basic peplum in painted leather (originally green) and was created using Vogue 8815 with an additional breast dart.
The polyester was just light enough to wear today! I hope each and every one of you have an awesome week. Until next time......
