Creation: Ginger Jeggings
Fabrics Used: Black Stretch Denim
The Visionary: Justine, SewCountryChick
Our Thoughts: These jeggings look polished enough for daily wear, yet are extraordinarily comfortable - what more could you ask for?
What I did was use my Ginger pattern, but I changed it to a jegging pattern like my Jalie Eleanore jeans. I had worked hard to get a good fit on that pattern and wanted to try it again in the stretchy fabric. A little experiment, if you will. Since the fabric is a stretchy knit, and much stretchier than an actual stretch woven denim, I traced my pattern and shaved off a few inches from my size 8 in the hips, and a little down the legs to make them smaller to allow for more negative ease. I really just eyeballed it and used a pair of leggings I have in my closet for reference. Luckily, they fit well! I had to make the yoke smaller and make the front pocket facing smaller too, since it’s a faux pocket, like on my Eleanore’s. I also followed the instructions from the Eleanore pattern to make the waistband. The fly is also faux, and just stitched closed and topstitched. So easy!Read More» Striped Cold Weather Robe Monday, February 13 2017

Our Thoughts: Rebecca used our white batiste to create this lovely tunic, sash & pants. How elegant!
Since I first saw the Yves Saint Laurent + Halston Exhibit back in February I’ve been dreaming of sewing up a YSL Creation of my own. I fell for this elegant tunic, sash and slim pant as soon as I saw the line art on the cover of Yves Saint Laurent’s V2180. I bought this out of print Vogue Paris Original on Etsy from Chloe’s Closet which has a huge selection of Vintage Patterns. My vision was to make this out of a light and airy fabric perfect for the heat of our Florida summers.Read More»
