I hope you enjoy it as much as I am enjoying meeting all of you.


Ok now on to this red hot vest and pants I just made. I love this so much! I used SIMPLICITY #9689 and made a few adjustments to the vest.


ADJUSTMENTS I MADE


I wanted a lower neckline so I brought the neckline down about a full inch. I also made the shoulders a bit more narrow and added a facing to the vest. The lining is edge to edge but I wanted to have wool facing vs the lining so I just created a new facing piece. You can see that below, if you would like to see how I did that let me know in the comments.

I made no changes to the pant's pattern, I cut a size 16 and they fit great! I love these pants and plan to make them again. They are high waist but not too high and anytime I can sew a pants pattern without making fit adjustments I mark it as TNT (tried and true) pattern.


I used a lightweight wool from MELANATED FABRICS, it is the perfect weight for the look I wanted. I also used one of our rayon prints for the lining. Both are linked below.



THE LOOK














Thank you guys for stopping by! Let me know what you think.

You look amazing as usual. I’m a visual learner and want to make a vest to go with this faux leather aline skirt… How did you do the wool facing vs the lining? I would appreciate it if you don’t mind sho the procedure or a step by step. Thanking you in advance…!¡!

I love it! The wool facing was an uplifting to that vest. Narrowing the shoulders made the fit, fabulous darling😁 Great call as per usual, why I love MiMi. And that ♥️, woowee😜... Will be checking out that fabric. My question is...

Was that the under stitching showing, on the facing in the picture or top stitched?
