I have eleven yards of this material. I keep threatening to make my husband and my four kids all pantsuits from it for our Christmas picture. How awesome would that be?
The shirt is from Simplicity 7146. Funky, huh?
It is a misses size 14 and fits me, but looks much better on my daughter. It was really easy to put together. I did cut the collar down by a LOT. And I think when I make it again I will go a little longer. The only issue was that the sleeves needed to be set in and sometimes I lose my patience with that, but I took my time and NO PUCKERS-like a boss. (Brushes off shoulders).
So my question is…would you wear this in public? I mean if you didn’t own a horse…I think it’s just retro enough to be able to pull off. My husband said his mother made him wear something similar in 1976 and he does not like it. (Not that that matters to me-sorry dear). What say you?
