Hurray and thanks to beautiful Rebecca for breaking my posting drought! Rebecca's thrilled to be back sewing again after having a bit of a hiatus herself. Turns out all she needed to get back on that sewing horse was some stylish but simple sewing projects of the 'instant gratification' kind. Here are two simple pieces Rebecca made and they work beautifully together and are getting plenty of wear. Easy pull-on pants made up in stunning digitally printed silk crepe de chine Peonies Dusk
were made from Vogue 1323
and silk crepe de chine pullover top in Black Sail (available all stores) made from McCalls 6551
(view B cut shorter as a top).
For her silk pants, Rebecca eliminated the fly front feature and separate wide waist band. Instead, she added a narrower 1'' elastic casing and they easily pull on, eliminating the need for a front opening. The back welt pockets were also omitted.
Rebecca has made loads of tops and dresses from View B in McCalls 6551
in various silks and lightweight cottons. It's a great wardrobe staple and the perfect simple sewing project when you want to sew up some lovely fabric FAST.
You may have noticed Rebecca on Instagram
last week. These are the same Vogue pants made up in our 100% silk crepe de chine Neon Squiggle
Stay tuned for another great creation by Rebecca in this pattern.
