I didn't realize this group of garments was like a mini-wardrobe until I was loading the pictures onto blogger. I was making comfortable basics (yet again), and - lo and behold - they coordinate!
The 3 tops are all from previously used patterns, but the pants are two versions of a new pants pattern.
- Striped v-neck from Jalie 3132.
- 5-pocket mocha-colored corduroy jeans from Ottobre Woman 5-2007-10.
Outfit 2 (below):
- A self-drafted baseball tee.
- 5-pocket jeans from Ottobre Woman 5-2007-10
The jeans are from the same pattern as the cords and, as it would happen, fit completely differently. The corduroy is lightweight and stretches more and more throughout the day; the denim has some stretch and really good recovery.
I've been on the search for the perfect jeans, and after wearing these like crazy, I think I've found them. They're a classic 5-pocket jean with a back yoke. The pattern gives you two "leg flare" options. I chose the more flared option, which seems almost straight to me. I would say the waist is somewhere between a high-rise and a mid-rise.
Anyway, I need to make another pair, since I'm starting to get nervous these perfect jeans will wear out!
