Hello Peeps! It’s Michelle here and I had the amazing opportunity of hosting the #sewyoruview January sewing party on Instagram! The pattern of the month was the Hickory Ensemble by Mood. This is s 2-piece unisex pattern.
Here is Mori and her #thehickoryensemble. This is a little upgrade from her work for home pajamas and the pattern whipped up so easy. I’d say that’s a winning combination.
Purchase Materials Used Below:
My idea for these Hickory pants:
-Although I had the softest terry from @moodfabrics My fabric choice was not ideal for the look I was creating. I had a “Tim Gunn” make it work conversation with myself. The quilted pieces where too stiff compared to the soft terry fabric, so it did not lay the way I wanted it to in the bulky seams.
-I shortened the length to crop the top and the sleeves.
-I extended the top length for my cardi, cut the center front open, added a collar and fringe.
-I added ribbed cuffs to the pants instead of elastic.
-I’m going to change the waistband elastic to drawstring , like I wanted to do originally.
