This is obviously an evening outfit... but I have made these patterns in more casual fabrics. The pants are especially versatile! I have made them in a plain jersey for yoga pants, a small plaid stretch knit for casual and so on....
I made the pants this time with this textured, stripped knit and I added an extra big flair at the bottom for a dresser look. The top is a stretch metallic fabric. It has the burnt out looking holes in it with a black netting.
Awesome fabric! The Bald Man has been waiting a year now for me to make something out of it... he picked it out for me while we were in Miami at Rex's fabrics. You do not want to know the cost per yd of this stuff!!! It took me so long to make something with it because I was afraid to cut it!!!
The last top I made with this pattern I used a separating zipper for the front closure. This time I used this hot and fabulous hook tape I got at the sewing expo in Atlanta last year. On this top I also lengthened the sleeves to my wrist because in the pattern the are a 3/4 length.
