DIY RED SUIT USING SIMPLICITY #8749 AND BURDA #6358
HI DARLINGS! Happy Monday. I am so excited to post this red suit look, lol. I know with Valentine’s Day approaching everyone is posting red looks but this is totally coincidental, lol. I made this a few weeks ago but just haven’t had time to photograph it, I love it so much and since I don’t wear anything I make out until I take pics in it I am happy I get to wear it now.
The suit is a more casual look, I used my SIMPLICITY PATTERN #8749 for the jacket and decided on using my new favorite drop crotch pattern aka poppy pants pattern by BURDA. They are trousers with a pretty low crotch and they are so comfy to wear. I made and POSTED them before HERE. I also planned on wearing this suit with sneakers which will be a very cool look too.
PATTERN AND LOOK DETAILS
PATTERN: The jacket is my SIMPLICITY #8749 pattern and the pants are BURDA #6358 which is a very quick and easy pants pattern. I lined the inside with a hot pink lining and used a bias binding finish on my pants. (shown below)
STYLE: Okay I wore a simple black turtleneck and my mid-calf slouchy black booties from STEVE MADDEN (similar ones HERE). The earrings are a fav from H&M. Every time I wear this pin on my jackets I get asked about it and I always laugh because I picked it up at JOANN FABRICS, they also have it in Silver.
