First, let's review the Cyd Top. I made this for the first time last summer with a chambray and coral with lace piecing in the back. I still love my original version so much and KNEW I need a stark white top as well. I simply LOVE white tops, especially white tops that aren't clingy all over and are fun--both of which this top is for me.
I love the peplum part of this top and the fact that you can embellish the crap out of it. I can see this color-blocked, with unusual fabric choices and an exposed zip down the back. What do you see when you look at this pattern? I am curious!
The design lines are what makes this top fun to sew and fun to play with. You can also make this sleeveless!
My pants are from the Georgie pattern which are an uber popular style in the current sewing world. They have many 'regular' jean details but with sort of legging styling meaning they simply pull on and off. Use a stretch fabric such as mine which is a stretch denim and you'll love them so very much!
This is my second go at the pants pattern. My first pair was made with a faux leather technically called a stretch bengaline I purchased from the StyleArc site. I love both pairs--this one made from a gray/white leopard print and my first from the faux stretch leather look bengaline.
I have worn the heck out of both the top and pants. I love the fit and style of both. I think they are fun, if I do say so myself!
What are you sewing for summer? I'd love to know!
