StyleArc Sadie Tunic and Closet Case Patterns Sasha Trousers

 

I've had my eye on both these patterns since they were released and they did not disappoint! I bought the StyleArc Sadie Tunic pattern after seeing Blogless Anna's gorgeous versions here and here. I've had this silk for quite some time after snatching it up at a local Morrison sale. I think quite a few of the Perth sewers have the same fabric. It is soft and dreamy to wear. I'm not even going to tell you what my teenage son said about the print. I think it's rather elegant!


The standout feature of this pattern is the sleeve design. It is so cool and interesting and I should have got a better picture of it. I was careful to follow the instructions and it was fairly straightforward to put together.



I also love the curved hem and the neckline and just everything really. The proportions seem to work very well together.


The back has a centre seam to accomodate a button and loop closure at the neckline. I ended up skipping this as I can easily fit the top over my head without it. Next time I may cut the back on the fold.


OK, now I'll just tuck that tunic in so you can see the pants. These are the Closet Case Patterns Sasha Trousers. (Embarrassingly I always have to stop myself saying that name in a Canadian accent since I heard Heather Lou speaking on the 'I love to sew' podcast! By the way, that episode is worth a listen if you haven't heard it yet).


I spent ages examining the sizing of these pants before cutting them out as the ones in the pattern pictures looked too tight to me. I wanted mine fitted, but not super tight. I read the blog posts, I looked at the size charts and got myself into a bit of a tizz. In the end I decided I was overthinking it and just made the size according to my measurements.


I made a toile and did a couple of fit modifications according to this very helpful blog post. I could have been fussier on the fit, but I had had enough of taking back selfies over my shoulder so got started. 


I am very happy with the result. These pants are so comfy and look smart and modern. The fit is just right and the stretchy bengaline allows easy movement. As an added bonus they go with my new blouse. I'm ready for an outing!

  2. Just fabulous, Absolutely love the print on your silk top, and how cool are those sleeves? I cut a muslin out of this style arc pattern last weekend and am looking forward to having something like this in my wardrobe, really soon!
    Also, I think the trousers look great on you (but then, you look great in all the pants!) - I love this pattern too, and am also keen to give it a whirl. Where did you get your bengaline from? I really like the colour :)

    1. oh you are very kind. Thank you for the lovely comments. I'm sure you will love the Sadie. The bengaline was from a local closing down sale, so no longer available. I paid $2/m but you probably don't want to know that!
