Cropped troose & lengthened tank

Leicestershire, ...






Even though the trousers are a petite pattern, I’m such a midget that i printed it out at 94%. I then made a size 19, but they were too big so picked them apart and made a 17. But the waistband is more like an 18. Oh well, I’ll get used to adjusting the petite, regular and tall sizes one day!

The top is the boxy silk tank which I’ve made before. On the first one, I did the neck pleats inverted rather than external & stitched down, and I liked it, so did these the same way. I also made it longer and slightly fitted at the waist.

Not a bad combo in the end, I think, especially with my shiny Irregular Choice lace-ups! :)

Material Notes

Yellow stretch sateen and black cotton lawn from FABRICLAND in Bournemouth, UK.

      Thank you again, Daniela. I don’t really know how it happened though because I’ve since made another pair using the same pattern and they are way too small! Was a bit of a fluke with these, I reckon :)

    I really like a whole look: colours and clean lines. I don’t mind to have such things in my wardrobe ).

      Thank you, Mary. Had to make those trousers twice though to get that fit! It was worth it tho. There was a time when I would have just binned them! x
