I've wanted to duplicate the striped pants on the pattern cover of V8929 for a long time...I've made the pattern half a dozen or more times, but not in the stripe as shown on the envelope
Both pattern and fabric are from Marcy Tilton. So I finally did!
Then, with potential candidates for a travel wardrobe in mind, I made V1453,
by Sandra Betzina.
I decided I wanted a more body-conscious fit, so I darted front and back and recut the side seams, to make this:
I made it out of black taffeta and trimmed it with black and silver striped silk dupioni...I didn't really mean to be so matchy-matchy, but, oh well!
So, I'm in the middle of doing one of my favorite things...making a travel wardrobe. We are going to Portugal in October.
