Resolution week 8 - And great news!
I know, I know - I am a week behind schedule. Actually, I did sew last week, but just didn't post. I have been really busy with some other things going that I am really excited about: the launch of my new website! The New Outfit Project! Yay!
Go check it out and sign up! (you can also see it inside the blog under the tab Map My Style). The private beta should go live by the end of the month. Fingers crossed.
For last week's sewing project, I did something simple using some leftover silk: Pajama Pants!
I had gone looking for some good and comfortable pajama pants for winter and all I could find was polyester. Polyester? #justsayno
Also, I was so excited about oxblood last year, that I might have gone a little over board and bought too much fabric in this color. Although I love it, I didn't want another top or dress in silk oxblood, so pajamas seemed like a good way to go.
I user the same pattern for the pants I made here and here, added about 1/2" on each seam, ignored the darts and made a casing for the ribbon at the waist. Finished it all with french seams.
On another note, SXSW is finally upon us. Living in downtown Austin is great, but there are two major SXSW hubs in our block making it party central 'til the wee hours. I will be attending a few events, but only those that are free.
Also, I am linking up with Casual Fridays - nothing more casual than pajamas! Visit the site and see what other bloggers have been up to.
