Fun and Easy V1355

Hi there,

Sorry I have been a bit slow to post I had a little bit of a busy time and the technology details of posting were bogging me down so I took a break.

Not from sewing just posting. Do you ever get fed up with the computer not doing what it had done before or a program just suddenly becoming so much more fiddly? I find sometimes I am fine and others I lose patience with all of it. I won’t bore you with the details but I am going to try to be more consistent from now on fingers crossed.

This week I am helping my son move , bringing my daughter home from college, and then next week driving interstate to collect my other son as he is also finished. So crazy busy. My sewing though is only behind on the blog I am sewing every free minute.

The Outfit I will share with you has  what I feel are the most comfortable pants I have made to date. V1355 is a Sandra Betzina pattern.

I decided to make this firstly in a knit . This  is in a reversal fabric so I made the top so that I can wear it either way. As you can see in the picture I started these when it was cold I love my alpaca fingerless gloves they make sewing easy in winter.



The next version was in a textured knit I  made the top a tunic style this fabric has stitched circles in pvc in rows so I had the challenge of lining them up.As you can see hand stitiching was needed.
This is a fun interesting garment . I lined it in sheer black mesh.sbpanttop6sbpanttop1sbpanttop

I first wore this in Melbourne. The picture was taken in my hotel room.

The next version was the pant in a woven fabric. This was a stash busting make as I had had this fabric for quite a while. Can’t remember where I bought it but have always liked it the print and black and ivory color also it is a rayon.sbpanttop-bjpg


I have teamed it in this pic with my little overtop  from Style Arc pattern Tammy dress.

I will definitely make more of these pants in knit. They are easy comfortable and I think flattering so a win .

Happy Sewing,

Hope you are having fun.

Sue 🙂

    I think you have sealed the deal for me. A friend of mine recently made these pants and loved them too. They really look great in. She too talked about how comfortable they are, so I guess it’s time to order the pattern 😊
