Simplicity 7229 is a TNT pattern that is probably my most-used in my collection; I have made it about 5 times! After seeing the new Style Arc “Darcy” pant, and having some printed pants on my wish list for a while, I decided to adapt 7229 with a faced hemline and make a pajama style pant that can be dressed up for work or worn with flats for lounging.
The fabric is again, from my Fabricland days stash, it’s a rayon crepe with a retro print and some stretch.
This pattern is so easy, it’s really an hour pattern! The waist yoke is cut on the bias for stretch, although with this fabric I probably didn’t even need to do that. I just narrowed the leg and drafted a hem slit on the outside of the leg with a rounded corner; and faced them. I didn’t add pockets because I wanted it fast and easy.
Here are the pants dressed up with an Issey Miyake twist top and some high heels which I love but can’t walk in but are great for posing! You can see a close up of the cute retro-squares print in the inset picture. Oh, and I’m experimenting with some fuchsia lipstick, too
Tonight I plan on having some fun planning my next projects!
