Here are two more FOs to share. The first is my Jackie-O inspired dress. I love how the shaping is on this one. I used a 1960s retro reprint pattern from Simplicity (3833). The fabric is a heavy cotton that I picked up at Ikea. I wore it to church with a white cardigan and my hair swept up and felt fabulous. I believe I made a size 14 and did a mini-FBA on this one. I could have probably gone a tad bit bigger on my bust alteration, but am sure it will be fine once
30 minutes before going to church, I also decided to sew these Simplicity pants that I cut out the night before. I am in love with them! I went to Yardage Town to find a white seersucker fabric to make a second pair, but came back empty handed. This is one of Simplicity's 1-hour patterns. It is for pants and shorts. I made the medium and omitted the drawstring.
The pants are pajama comfy, but pack a nice punch for style. The fact that two people told me that I looked really skinny in them - BONUS! Yes, that might be the reason for wanting a few more pairs....lol. Actually, I was reading about silky pants being a fall trend. I am all for it! Here's a link to a pair I saw on Net-a-Porter.
