I've been meaning to try Kommatia Patterns for quite some time now; these Baggy Cropped Trousers beeing amongst my (and Luna's) favorites.
As mentioned above I was going start by making Luna a pair. A size M sounded just about right for her - but as you can see they ended up on me. I'm sure it has more to do with my choice of fabric than the actual sizing on the pattern. Because the only times I'm a size M is in my dreams!
The pants are made of a crepe back satin from Stofdepotet. I've used the crepe as front. The fabric has some stretch - and stretches even more when worn, so yeah, that's why I'm in a size M. I might be the worst Mum ever, but I'm kind of glad that Luna was swimming in these because I'm absolutely and head over heels in love with this design. It's not easy to see on my black version but the pants have an assymetric crotch line - which could easily be altered into an ordinay crotch line if preferred.
I did alter the design a little. The original pattern has you inserting a zipper in the cb seam, but I moved mine to the side seam on Luna's suggestion.
The top is self drafted. This is my wearable muslin - now I just wish I had added more length to it. My focus was on the high neck/straps/bust fitting part, and I wasn't really going to use it...but hey, it's a crop (that I really don't feel that comfortable in, so this one might go to Luna). I do like the fit of the top, though. Just as I had envisioned. More to come for sure. Perhaps even a dress version. The fabric is some stretchy 'leather look' jersey from Stofdepotet.
And that's how I went out last night for my friend's 40th birthday. Today I'm a little hung over, still wearing last nights make up...and have a house to clean. Le Sigh! (Or I could just sew some pants for Luna)
