This look came about because my sew sister (TabithaSewer) and I discovered that we had the same type of fabric ! I purchased my Acordian pleat fabric from Textile Fabrics in Nashiville , Tennessee. Tabitha scored her fabric at a thrift store haul in the form of a old formal dress !! When I saw her fabric on her instastories I had to say something because I had in my possesion the same type of fabric without a clue on what to do with it !
Tab had decided to make a skirt out of her fabric and when she saw my message she immediatly asked me to collab and make one with her! I was excited to colab but not completly sold on the skirt idea for myself. I had been eyeing a pair of Pallazo pants made out of the same fabric but just hadnt gotten the courage to cut into the fabric and make them .
Top : Simplicity 8093
Pants: Mccall 3519 ( Vintage)
For the top I used a beautiful white Charmeuse that I picked up from Joanns a few months ago.
I put the Pants pattern together without using the instructions and decided to alter them slightly by adding a extra row of stitching at the top of the waist. When I inserted elastic it gave the pants a \”paper bag effect\” at the top !
I\’m so glad that Tabitha asked me to do this collab with her . I have been so busy lately with my 9-5, working on the pattern and being sick , I needed this to get y sewing mojo back . I am really working on trying to find a healthy balance in my life . I have so many plans in my head and I find myself trying to do them ALL at once . I am trying to learn how to slow down and just live in te moment !
