Vogue V881 Straight leg trousers

The vogue Custom Couture Collection by Claire Sheaffer. 

Straight leg trousers 


A Jaycotts post 



Fashion trends are slightly turning away from nothing but skinny leg trousers and jeans,which don't always suit our shape. Straight leg trousers give a very balanced appearance to the figure and are more flattering.
This pattern is available from Jaycotts Vogue V7881 Trouser pattern


This is a Vogue designer pattern and I love it. The pattern envelope states that the instructions are easy to follow and I certainly found that to be correct.

The Jalie Bra


The Jalie Bra


What a strange world this is at the moment. One day life went on as normal but the next we couldn't go out, it was a struggle to purchase food and strangely, toilet rolls and life changed dramatically.
Some people have coped remarkably well, others not so much. Whatever our experience of this frightening virus one thing we can be certain of is that life will never be the same again.

Simple things such as what to wear when stuck indoors posed many problems ,I think most of us went through the Pyjama stage but it wasn't ideal. "Office wear" became a cross between lounge wear and casual. The one thing which women in their thousands did was to ditch structured underwired Bras for the comfort of softer Bralet's.
I was no exception and took to making my own and learning a new skill

Vogue Nightwear in fabulous Art Gallery fabrics

A #MCBN post

Vogue Nightwear in fabulous Art Gallery fabrics






I saw a  pattern when I was browsing and although it is nothing like I have ever worn I wanted to make it.
One of my favourite fabric Brands is Art Gallery Fabrics and it took me no time at all to decide to use this combination of print and plain to make the garments

I was not disappointed!
This is an absolutely gorgeous outfit and I love it so much.  It is extremely comfortable to wear, it is fun and so different to what is available ready made.



There is also a camisole which I made with the leftovers.
