Made by a Fabricista: Plaids and Peplums





Spring is just around the corner, and I am still obsessed with plaids!  I wanted to officially end my journey with the color combination that originally lit the fire of plaids in my life this season.  The fabric used for these pants is a poly novelty weave suiting found (HERE).  I actually used the wrong side of this fabric because the lines seamed more in line with my taste (grainy and broken vs the other side)

Right Side

Wrong Side


I used Simplicity 8056/S0652 to create these pants.  It is part of the Amazing Fit series and had alternate back pieces for different body types.  I used the curvy option.  Unlike many of my other projects, I created this garment as per the manufacturer instructions with one minor adjustment, which was added 3 inches to the length.  The construction took a tad bit longer vs some of my go to slopers.  The level of detail is not that far off from constructing jeans.  I plan  on converting this into a sloper a well for future jumpsuits/rompers and pants suits.  The pattern also contained some great tips on interfacing and the waistband which also has facing.  

I used my inseam as the dominant stripe for these pants.  

My top is a basic peplum in painted leather (originally green) and was created using Vogue 8815 with an additional breast dart.  




















The polyester was just light enough to wear today!  I hope each and every one of you have an awesome week.  Until next time...... 

Happy Sewing!!
