New Pants – Simplicity 1069

Simplicity Pattern 1069I love the big blousy pants that are popular now.  Simplicity 1069, View A fits the bill perfectly.  It has a tie at the waist as a design element but I didn’t make that.  They fit like palazzos with a zipper up the back.

I found this fabric at Joann – it’s one of their signature fabrics and it’s a woven Rayon Challis in Ocean so it’s very flowey, drapey, extremely soft and loose.  A perfect lightweight fabric for the hot and humid summers here in South Texas.  I love this paisley print.  It’s hard to see here but the background is a rich deep blue and the paisley is a beautiful teal. A rotary cutter was a must with this fabric because it would shift just by looking at it!

I added one of my old labels.  Oh, I just ordered new ones from Dutch Label Shop.  If you order some, use coupon code girlsinthegarden (all one word lower case) by 23 July 16 for 15% off. They have a really cool interface to help you design your labels.

This pattern turned out so comfy and pretty!  I’ve already worn them to work a couple of times.

I also made a pair of shorts, View C using Gertie’s Strawberries in rayon challis too!  Love them!  Just hanging loose at our coast house!
