Scant sewing going on over here but I have been keen on the re-fashion. I find it fun, like a practical puzzle one can wear.
I found a nice wool 90's era pants suit at the thrift. Great detail and lovely construction, it did have a few issues in the design which tagged it as mid 90's. Looksy
|I loved the bias detail but hated the length.|
|High waisted pegged pants, oh so 90's.|
|I cut out the lining and opened the leg seams.|
|I made a center front seam by cutting down the ease.|
|Here it is laid out flat, I cut off the bottom of the leg below the knee.|
|I love the bias detail on the side seam. I thought I would need a gore on the cb seam but the pants were wide enough, so no need.|
Full disclosure, I took the jacket to a tailor to have cut down. It really is beyond my skill set and I didn't want to risk ruining it just to be thrifty. I wish I had more tailoring chops, it's a different animal.
|All tricked out with gloves, a repro hat and a tiny "V" for victory pin.|
|Side seam detail and I need to stand up straight.|
I'm slowly coming around to a few actual sewing projects. Time will tell.
