HI DARLINGS! I have to start by thanking you guys for joining my community. I created the G-GROUP to have a safe space to share our health and fitness journey and I was blown away at how many of you joined yesterday. This is completely free, all you have to do is sign up as a member of my site so you can see and read the posts. You can also post and share your own images and comment on others. 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.


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.


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