Whew! What a hell of a few months of this New Year we’ve been having right? While everyone has been shut in due to the corona virus, I’ve been still having to go into an office and work. I can’t lie, as an empath what’s going on in the world has been wiping me out energetically and my sew creativity has been super low. I’ve been having to do a lot of self-care to keep my nervous system from bottoming out and I’ve been taking plenty of time to rest. I’ve finally just got back into the mood to sew, and so I knew I definitely wanted to make a pair of pants.
PANTS – Mimi G Style Simplicity 9114 . I knew as soon as this pattern dropped that I was going to be making these. I love Mimi G patterns and the fit is always spot on, taking into account women curves. These pants are no different. They are a high waisted pants with a super comfortable fit. I have plans to make many more in all types of fabrics and colors and have actually already cut out the fabric for the next three pair I’m going to make. My only recommended modification would be the length of the pants. I’m 5’7 and they still were a tad longer than where I wanted them to hit so I increased the hem width to still give me that cropped pants look.
SWEATER – McCall 8070, View A #AidenMcCalls
FABRIC – For the pants I choose this beautiful Mood Exclusive Ethereal Verdure stretch cotton sateen Item #MD0459 from their new Serengeti Collection. It’s a dream to sew with and has great recovery. The sweater fabric is PFD (prepared for dying) French Terry that was gifted to me by a fashion company I used to work for. I used Rit Dye to dye it to this hunter/dark green.
