What I'm working on

I hope to make some progress today on a pair of 1941 trousers from the reprinted Simplicity 3688 pattern:

 You've probably seen this pattern around (I see it everywhere).  Here is a close-up of the original pattern sketch:
I'm making the trousers out of this amazing dark navy lightweight wool fabric that I got at a charity shop and am making the blouse out of a bright cerise colored satin.

Yay! I am very excited...hope I can get some other work done today so that I can start sewing!!

  1. I'll be looking forward to seeing how it goes! I have this one but have just sort of looked at it sideways and thought about it. For years.

  2. Hi! I just found your blog! I can't wait to see it finished! I've been meaning to sew a pair of pants and would love to customize this into sailor pants.
