I'm supposed to be sewing up Halloween costumes, as you know, but I was distracted again by something shiny.
Simplicity 2403 dress, so I wasn't really stressing over it, but then I saw that PR is having a Think Pink contest in support of Breast Cancer Awareness month. What a fabulous idea!! I joined immediately, then surfed over to Eugenia's blog, where I saw a pink version of this pattern, and I knew I had to have one. Like immediately.
New Look 6816, made of silk crepe and lined with silk habotai. They are the most luxurious and comfortable pants I own.
Since I've made this top before, I won't bore you with the fit details. If you are interested, I gave a complete review of my first version here. The only change I made was to use the 3/4 length sleeve and use poly ITY knit rather than cotton lycra. I'm quite pleased with this make as it fits well, is quite comfortable and rescues this skirt from orphan-hood. Win! OK, now I really am going to make that Rapunzel dress. Scout's honor!
