I have a complete outfit to show you today! These are both from Seamwork magazine that I just subscribed to. It’s a fun way for me to try lots of simple patterns that are quick to sew up.
The first one is the Akita from Collette patterns.
I think I like it. Simple, easy to construct, fits well.
The odd thing about this pattern is there is only one pattern piece!! That means you can’t use it for one-direction fabrics. Also the instructions have a very odd idea about using bias tape along all seams. I tried it on the first one, but will be using my own ideas next time.
I will need to go up another size on the next one, to a 10.
The next pattern is Moji from the same Seamwork/Collette pattern company.
This is my second pair. The first was a disaster that cannot really be worn. I looked up how to do a Full Butt Adjustment and it helped tremendously. I do believe I need another small FBA because they run a little tight still. I am not sure if I will do another pair.
This picture shows my point although in all fairness there is 0% give in this grey material. Luckily I had purchased enough discount/trial fabric for 2 separate pants. I’m just not sure I am a fan of these on me. Also the tie waist does not seem to secure on my waist very well.
I will give the Akita Blouse another go. It’s comfortable and casual and a quick sew.
The Moji Pants I will have to pass on in the future. Not the pattern for my shape.
Thank you for stopping by and having a look.
