Python prints are very big this year and when I found this one on Fabric.com I bought 4 yards, all that they had at the time. You've seen the dress and I had enough left over for a t shirt. But I love the color blocked look of print fronts and solid backs and sleeves. I made this one in a V neck because they are always touted as 'slimming'. Maybe, maybe not. But I don't like them too deep in winter because it's cold to have so much exposed chest!
The pants are from the summer in my tnt pattern for pants, made from a linen lycra blend from Marcy Tilton. Certainly not for today's weather! I need a pair of heavier gray pants to wear with this, which is actually next up on my sewing list after the sweater jacket I'm working on. The second top, or rather the third, if you count the black and white stripe Style Arc knock off, is also made with fabric from Marcy Tilton. It's another of those double layer textured knits that I like so much. I don't remember what the content is but it has lycra and at least some polyester.
I also made a pair of red linen pants just like these, so I won't bother to post them.
Now for a taste of my new sewing, Burda Style 117 11/13.
The pattern calls for ponte knit, leather sleeves and leather trim. I'm using this beautiful double sided wool sweater knit from emmaonesock/ instead, with the striped side showing for the sleeves and the plain side for the body of the jacket. The collar is a single layer and the inside or the striped side shows. The trim will be black leather from a leftover skin I've had sitting for several years. More next time.
Have a great weekend.
