Moji pattern can be found at the online magazine Seamwork, which I am a subscriber. For 6 bucks a month you have a choice of 2 patterns that are approximately 1-3 hours to make! In addition, there are sizes for curvy girls too! Also, I’ve always loved Colette patterns!
There are two versions of this pant and I made both. I opted out of the grommets at the waistband and made buttonholes instead. I used size 14 and finished my seams with an overlock stitch.
My version 1 is a mint mystery cotton bottom-weight fabric thrift find for $2! Score!
My version 2 is a lightweight denim from my stash. I also used a pretty floral from my scrap stash for inside the pockets.
Next time, I will go up a size to accommodate my fuller tummy (was just a tad snug); but I will still rock them! Overall, I love this pattern and it comes together easily and quickly! I will definitely make more!
I hope everyone had a lovely holiday! We should be thankful and give thanks EVERYday!
I have been working on building my wardrobe and get sidetracked by other crafty things to do, like embellished small clutches, which are addicting! (I’ll share later, but here’s a peek!) Anyway, I need more dresses in my life – I live in Florida and wear dresses a lot! Although the temps can be steamy (understatement) during summer; I still underline, and sometimes, also line my dresses and am still cool (in more ways than one)! ;D
So, I’ve been wanting to give the Pastille dress from Colette’s Sewing Handbook a go! I love how it’s turning out! Not quite completely done, but here’s where I am…
I will show completed version soon!
Until next time…HAPPY SEWING!
