This is the first time in a while I have made a entire outfit !
In the beginning it was just about making a wearable muslin for the Birkin Flares .
In the end it turned into a entire outfit … WIN !
About the Birkin Flares …
I had been watching this pattern for a while . I found out about these during the testing phase , so I had to wait until they released . I knew they would be a hit and I was right !
The fit and flare of these jeans really make them a classic !
Baste and Gather really did a wonderful job designing these for the everyday women .
They have the perfect amount of comfort and support !
Her pattern can be found here
The construction of these babies was relatively easy . The instructions where clear and concise.
I did make a few mistakes but I was able to correct them . I did decide to add 4 inches to the pants … this was to accommodate my legs and a 5 inch heel 🙂 SUCCESS!!
I ommited the buckles and rivets this time around but I plan to tackle them with the REAL pair !
I do plan to go down a size because I want a snugger fit ! That was the purpose of making a wearable muslin before … and i get two pair of Jeans 🙂
I made these from a ponte knit that was gifted to me ! It really has a vintage feel to it .
Once I finished the Jeans I quickly realized that I had nothing to wear with it .
A perk I can not get use to is being able to make new clothes when you need them, so I did …
It seemed to go perfect with the style of these Jeans !!
The only change I made was to omit the gathered sleeves
I decided to go with a chiffon which proved to me a little bit of a headache… but I made it thru !
I decided to make a simple lace bodice to go under the top.
I love the entire look !!
I cant wait to make my REAL pair of Birkin Flare .. I plan to make them out of White Jean!
Until Next Time !!!
