A article of this outfit is posted in the newest La Maison Victor, April 2020, I used fabric from De Lappenkraam, a Dutch (web)shop.
This year I made a promise to myself, not to buy clothes only make them. This way I save money to buy a new cover lock at the end of this year.
I’m a social worker and we have regulations how to dress yourself at the office. I didn’t have enough decent yet light hearted clothes to wear to work last year. When I received the pattern overview this pattern of the Valerie caught my eye. It’s perfect in a linen fabric, lovely for work. This way I worked ahead of schedule.
Honestly in the end it’s more a outfit for the beach, with flipflops then the office. *hihi.
The fabric was sponsored by De Lappenkraam, a store which I’m blogging for as well. I looked on there site for a linen fabric and found one. Just needed to have a matching fabric for the top, so I texted the owners of the store and the send my three kind of colors.
The top I draw myself, eight with a different sleeve, like you can see on the pictures. About the last yellow top I wrote a tutorial.
I made the front part of the leg 4 cm smaller. I did it before cutting in to the fabic, I chanced the pattern. I fold the pattern on the straight of thread each side 2 cm, making a total of 4 cm per side. I had to replace the plaid, but by measuring the old plaids it was a easy job.
Honestly it was out of need because I ordered to the wrong length of fabric. But if I didn’t chance it, it would drop form my ass anyway. *hihi.
On the back side of the legs I took a cm in both darts, like this it fitted better and a had more accent on the curves.
And finally I chanced the hem of the pants, I make a hem ad form instead of right/straight. Like this the hem is better fitting. When it’s right/straight I always have a gap in the back. In the Netherlands we call it a “construction worker cleavage”.
In the end I’m very happy with the end result! I would wear it on vacation but also at work, it brings cheerfulness. *hihi
Because I was stubborn doesn’t mean it’s not a beautiful pattern, like wise. I’m enthusiastic about this pattern, easy to make! I didn’t read the description, only take one look at the picture of the plaids to look if I was right, a check up.
