I made this pantsuit — a wrap top and separate pants — to go with a Seventies-style faux fur coat I recently made (also posted on BurdaStyle). I used Simplicity 7295, a vintage pattern from 1975 that’s very Halston-like (see pic below of Halston ensemble from the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute). A great evening look with a Studio 54 vibe! More info on my blog, Male Pattern Boldness, here: http://malepatternboldness.blogspot.com/2012/02/glitzy-halston-inspired-outfit-update.html
I used a stretch knit synthetic with sequin-like mirrored plastic stick-ons (for lack of a better term). The fabric is machine washable but can’t be dried in a machine as the glue is heat sensitive. The bias trim and belt are made from a black Lycra fabric I had in my stash. The pants have an elastic waistband.
