Every year I make a promise to myself that I will sew more outfits that I can actually wear more than once and every year I break that promise to myself .
I made that same promise to myself this year and I’m really working toward keeping it . This outfit checks ALL those boxes! It is chic, comfortable ,fashionable.
When I saw this pattern I really knew it would become a staple in my wardrobe . Both of the pieces can be paired with other pieces. I decided to go with the tunic ( View B) minus the button .
I used some Lyocell Linen from Joann’s that I have had in my stash for over a year!
This was the perfect outfit for it . Once I washed this linen it was SEW soft on my skin !
I added 2 inches to the sleeves on the tunic
I added a 1 1/2 inches to the pants .
I omitted the button on the tunic .
I used a blind hem on the pants to eliminate the hem line
I really love how this outfit turned out and the two patterns of the fabric work so well together . I plan on making the top in the shorter version VERY soon!
Well , I am off to make more sustainable pieces for my work wardrobe !
Until Next Time XOXO
