Even though the weather is still cold here, I am going on holiday soon and as we are going North I will need some nice casual clothes suitable for warmer weather.... yay!
So I have been looking around the webs and have been loving seeing casual drapey pants and decided it was time to pull out the Tessuti Suzy pant pattern again. Last time I made these in a size small and in silk (posted here). I tried these on as I know my shape has changed a bit since early last year. Crossfit has ensured my butt is a little more rounded than it used to be!
The pants fit but the side seam told the story - it pulls to the back at my butt and pulls forward at my thigh and back again toward my calf... so I figured I would try on my original muslin (not blogged) I made in a medium. Well they fit much better now and fit nicely over the new, improved butt. So I traced the medium off and made the same one alteration as last time (shortened the leg length by about 1/2") and amazingly found some gorgeous rayon at Spotties on sale. So a new Tessuti suzy pant was
The top is New Look 6150 made in a beautiful knit rayon from The Fabric Store. I choose my size by looking at the finished bust measurement and using the one that gave me one inch of ease. It is a bit of a fiddly make with the pleats and gathers in a rayon knit, but so worth it! I had been looking for a top similar to a RTW one I used to own - pictured in this blog post. I think I have found it and plan to make more of these flattering tops.
My new fave outfit.... Ciao kittens... more warm weather makes soon...
