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.”

Making progress on this dress! Getting ready to out the zipper in… wish me luck, I’ve been fighting with my sewing machines all day….
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.
Be sure to stop by my pattern store! Lots to choose from. E-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org and mention this blog and receive 30% of all sewing pattern purchases! Offer good October 31, 2016 only!
So I started my inventory if my closet. I talked to my Mom and told her what I was doing…. Inventory of my closet….. her response was black, black, black… Well she was right! 2 pair of black pants, two pair of black capri’s.. I did have one pair of tan claim diggers and one pair of light brown pants. Only need to alter one pair of the capri’s so they fit. So apparently my capsule wardrobe is going to start with those. I have one cute cardigan in a creme color and several little tops that have a vintage feel to them. I also have three of my circle skirts that I will be adding to this!
My goal now is to figure out the colors I want to bring to this dull start. So next is going to be the inventory of the fabrics I have in my stash. Not a bad start!
