Living a rural, country life where most days are spent in enjoyable time tending the garden, cooking from scratch, taking care of my family and running the odd errand or two, I have become tired of the 'jeans-every-single-day' that seems to have become my unofficial 'uniform' and want to look nice and presentable but still wear clothes that will meet the practical needs of my daily living. We also enjoy attending plays and concerts and 'city life' at our nearby large city, but right now it's my 'daily' needs I'm thinking of.
Being a part of the Make a Garment a Month Challenge and having made a personal pledge to only sew complete outfits I have come up with a plan for the month of November 2013.
Straight legged pants with a side zip will be sewn from Simplicity 7131, view D, in a chocolate brown twillish fabric that has a little stretch and a top from light/medium weight rustish colored knit from NEWLOOK 6735, view B. The knit has brownish marks through it that will pair well with the chocolate brown. This will be my first pair of fitted pants. Until now, my pant-making experience has been limited to pajamas with elastic waists and shorts with elastic waists for my girls when they were little. :)
