Don't know about you, but this time of year, I like to start thinking about sewing some garments for fall. I love the colors of fall, the browns, oranges, greens, and purples.
I found this brown, floral percale on Fabric Mart's site and wanted to try it for a garment. There are lots of choices on their site, which you can see here: Percale/Sheeting
This fabric has a very crisp hand, perfect for a pair of cropped pants. Back in my day, these were called gauchos. Anyone else remember that phase? Here is the pattern I used, if you are interested!
This fabric was a great choice for this pant as it holds its shape, is crisp, and is comfortable.
I only made a few modifications, the most noticeable was to lengthen the tie.
Let's talk about my bright green top for a moment. This is some of FM's linen, this is the avocado green. I had just enough left in my stash from a previous project to make a fun top to go with these wild, floral pants.
I modified this pattern, by leaving off the flange of the sleeve. Simplicity 8642
I love how these fabrics go together!
I hope you are all enjoying summer and creating some great makes!
Thanks for reading!
