Simplicity 1069 - Tropical Rayon

Sometimes you see inspiration and it stays in your mind.   Then a fabric store emails with new fabric and in that email is the perfect fabric for that inspiration and it just all comes together

My inspiration was Chic Over 50's Instagram post 
a beautiful tropical print wrap skirt.  Style Maker Fabrics' had this See You at Six Tropical Jungle Rayon in a Sunday newsletter.  I just went right and ordered it.  After the fabric came, it was time to find a pattern, Simplicity 1069 was just the wrap pattern I wanted.

Once I started looking at the pattern, I noticed the wide leg pants.  I put a poll up on Instagram Stories and the pants won, so I was leaning that way.  Then Karen (intostitches) sent me an Instagram post  see here  and after weeing that, I knew I wanted to make the pants.

Now for sizing, the Simplicity pattern had finished hip measurement on the pattern but not waist.  I went with a size 12 in the hips and 14 in the waist.  I also added 2 inches to the length.

The sewing is good, pleats in the front, darts in the back and invisible zipper at center back.  I ended up taking in quite a bit at the waist.

I am happy I added the length, I needed it just to hem.

Mike and I took the photos, at my Aunt's lake, she use to sit in that chair and fish.  It is now my cousin's place and I need to remember to take photos there more often, it is a beautiful and peaceful place.

I love these pants so much, I feel glamorous and so chic.  Thanks Shauna for the inspiration, Michelle for the perfect fabric and Karen for the photo for the pants.  Mike and I finished the photos, we went to the grocery store, I was very fancy!

  3. Nice and informative information . Once again, Bitcoin has bounced back and is currently trading slightly above $60,000 support zone against the US Dollar and the bulls are so much in charge to see btc to $65,000 and ahead. Its still a great time to day trade with the little you hold and its not still late to buy little btc and grow your portfolio as i have been doing with Mr Carlos Wilfred for the past 6 weeks now and i came to understand that you can make profit from the market at anytime and its even profitable when btc is bullishing so your portfolio can grow too. Mr Carlos Wilfred signals are so accurate and yields lots of profits, using his signals has made me 5.34 btc with my initial 0.7 btc which you all traders/investors will see is profitable. This is the most beneficial means of trading as experienced and he can be contacted via telegram @iebinaryfx or Gmail (investandearnbinaryfx@gmail.com) for inquiries
