This is the second iteration of the top pattern I drafted off Simplicity 9037, the 1970 version. The lapis blue linen I picked up for $2 at Save Mart. The [p]leather I bought 20cm of from The Fabric Store.
In this picture I am wearing top-to-toe home made garments (on the outside at least). I have paired the top with a pair of pants made from Simplicity 3688. These are also fashioned from vintage fabric – a very hessian-like wool tweed that I purchased about 5 metres of for $10 if memory serves.
I’ve realised that pants don’t photograph so well on the hanger so I’ve just taken a little close up of the top of the pants. I french seamed these suckers and hand picked the zip. Yeah!
This top (and the subsequent outfit combo) was a pinsperation taken from this outfit that I pinned recently from my favourite pinterest board Fancy Pants.
