For this outfit I used McCalls 5105 for the top and Vogue 8138 for the slacks. I was unable to find these patterns on the website so I posted pictures of the pattern.
- Navy Blue Double Knit
- Black Faux Leather
- Non-Roll elastic
For the top I made view C with the following alterations:
- added 3 1/2 inches to the length of the bodice
- Removed 6 inches from the sleeve hemline and added faux leather
I chose this McCall's pattern for the top because of the variety of necklines and sleeve options that are available. I wanted a simple v-neck tunic style top that was a quick and easy sew and this pattern was a perfect choice. I chose the slacks from this Vogue pattern because it looked like a good fit on the model
and I was hoping for the same results
Both patterns are simple and easy to construct. The pants are pull-ons with an elastic waist and I was able to construct them straight out of the envelope with no adjustments. The pants length, the crotch length and the ease in leg/thigh areas was a perfect fit.
For the sleeves I removed 6 inches from the hem and added faux leather. I really enjoyed working with these patterns to create this outfit. I will possibly make this again for the spring in a lightweight fabric.
