I just completed a lounging outfit from the 1930’s:
One can never have enough lounging, right?
I made this up in a really nice navy blue stretch satin that was a dream to work with. The bow ties are in a cerise satin.
Overall, the unprinted pattern was pretty easy to sew. It called for a placket on the side but since the material is stretchy and is quite low in the back, I found that I could just slip it on. YAY! The slowest part was probably the blind hemming around the neckline and shoulders but even that went quickly once I stopped dragging my feet and actually started doing it 🙂
Here I am lounging in my hotel room on a recent work trip:
The outfit is super comfortable. The ties are removable so I can play with the color and the waist is tied with an obi style belt with a removable tie.
I love the back of the top:
And how wide the legs are:
I just love the color combo…plus it fits in with my spring/summer wardrobe planning:
Here’s another view of the outfit:
Now I just need to make a bed jacket and some matching slippers. I’m also thinking it would be fun to use this pattern to make a nautical inspired outfit from the 1930’s. It’s a great basic pattern and I didn’t have to make any changes to it, so I definitely plan on using it again!
