I’m back this week with another Holly Adaptation! Last week I showed you my refashioned Holly Hawthorn Dress and here are the pants. These were a quick refashion after separating my jumpsuit. I just had to add a new waistband (included in the pattern) and redo the side invisible zip. Easy peasy. I’m wearing them here with one of my favorite me made tops, Anne Klein V1382 modified from a dress to a blouse in organic voile.
These are such comfortable pants. Easy to wear all day long as long as I keep clean. So far so good! I really needed another pair of pants in my wardrobe and these fit the bill. Plus I love a nice wide leg.
These pants are the first part of my second look from my recent wardrobe plans. I just got in my hemp silk to start on my top and plan on dyeing both these pieces n the future. I’m planning on dyeing the pants a pale aqua and the top a brighter shade of turquoise.
I took these pictures on Friday. Last day with both kids together exploring our parks. School started for Nigel yesterday! My little boy is now a first grader!!! The summer really flew by.
We spent the day first at Anthony Park, here in Naples, which has a lovely trail and bridge/deck on the water. It was cool and overcast for a change so a lovely day for a walk. It’s not in the best part of town and there are no restrooms (a must with kids) so we left soon after. We headed out to our favorite Greenway Park, down the road a bit, for more playground play and a picnic lunch. Afterwards we played at home for a bit before heading out to meet Nigel’s new teacher at the school’s open house, which Ami slept through!
Holly Pants Construction:
See my earlier Holly jumpsuit post for original construction info. These are a modified size 10 (US) in a Hemp Linen Fabric from Organic Cottons Plus. All I did to refashion these from the original jumpsuit to pants was reinstall my side zip and then added the new waistband piece and a metal hook closure. Really easy to sew with a fully enclosed waist. I really like the extended flap on this pattern. Clean finished and very comfortable.
Hope you had a beautiful summer! Happy Sewing!
