Sailor Pants & Vogue Blouse

Vogue 9076

I was making the dress but when attaching the gathered skirt section I thought nah, don’t like that! I I opted to make a blouse and skirt instead. For the skirt I re-cut and made it a circle skirt .
I really love this bodice, so much detail. Vogue passes this off as “easy” I don’t think so. Gathers, placket, collar, button cuffs, loops. I used a poly crepe ( The colours were the attraction, very pretty fabric. I also added a waistband.

Burda Sailor Pants.

Beautiful coral wool crepe.
Like a lot of burda instructions, this had me a bit bamboozled.. I couldn’t quite figure out the front section. Anyways, got through it. I already want to make another pair. Design wise, I think the invisible zipper should go in the back seam not front. I wore last night and found it quite a hassle undoing buttons and zip. I’m going to unpick band and move zipper to back seam.

Update – I removed the front zipper and moved to back seam. So much easier to get in and out of now

    Gorgeous outfit! I like your idea about moving the zipper front the front. I have been thinking about making sailor pants but, that’s the reason I haven’t…
