I didn't dare use a print fabric for the whole outfit however. I had a beautiful yellow cotton knit and the striped poly/lycra piece in my stash and I think they are perfect together.
Now I have to tell the truth. The pants from the pattern were extremely wide at the hemline and I chickened out of using them. Instead I used My Silhouette Yoga pants pattern and made them wider as I showed in this post a couple of years ago. I really like those palazzo pants .I added side seam pockets but removed them because they wouldn't behave.
Now about the top. It sewed up beautifully. As usual, Sandra's instructions were very clear. BUT , I forgot to remember that this was a close fitting top and didn't add extra at the side seams . I did cut a size C rather than the B I usually use but it is tight. For that reason, this will be an " at home outfit " ,
It looks really good with this about 10 year old skirt which I still love and the shrug from a previous post.
Summer has finally come with a vengeance here in the Maritimes and I put my outfit to good use relaxing on our deck on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
Have a great week everyone. I hope that even if it's summertime, you found a little time to sew this weekend.
