Cigarette pants

Good morning! I’ve been busy working on projects and custom orders. Cigarette pants are my new project. Here are a couple of pictures and pattern inspirations!

McCall’s 9517 and Advance 8974

These pants are great for casual everyday or dress them up. The pants have a back zipper with darts and facing. Easy pattern for beginners or the experienced seamstress! The navy cigarette pants are made with a lighter weight cotton fabric. I used a heavier cotton fabric for the grey ones. Both are very comfortable and easy to throw on for a quick trip to the store or for a day playing with your kids “in my case it’s grandkids.”

Circle skirts – New lengths

Circle Skirts – New lengths

Well, I haven’t managed to work on my capsule wardrobe… not specifically anyway! But, I’m making great strides in the skirt department! I’ve almost completed seven circle skirts, 3/4 circle skirts and one 8 gore skirt. They are all different lengths and colors. All will have elastic waistbands. I’m also getting ready to start some pencil skirts. Maybe I’ll become the “Skirt Lady”, I’m pretty pleased with these….. photos to follow the new batch!

Some stretch soft texture!

Butterick

Here’s the top inspired by Butterick 6620, over added a couple of darts to give it some shape. Hemmed the bottom and sleeves. It will be perfect to throw on with a pair of cigarette pants to run to the fabric store!

I’m self drafting this dress based off of a blouse pattern that I don’t have. It’s looking pretty good. I’ve made several patterns including a short sleeve version. This one will have 3/4 length sleeves and a full circle skirt.

I’ve also cut out a 3/4 circle skirts out of a red linen. I’m pretty sure I have enough to make the short sleeve shirt to go with it.
