Time to finish out my blog posts before the year comes to a close! Today I’m sharing one of my favorite looks for Winter- Vogue 1914 Ribbed Knit in Pecan. This is my very favorite loungewear set- totally secret pajamas!
I really wanted to mimic the outfit on the cover of Vogue 1914 after finishing my last set in teal. More sewing details in that post and I have a video review over on YouTube. I love the way the stripes in the rib knit drape across this design! The best part is that there is no planning involved- each piece is designed with the grainline direction to get this look. I scooped up this rib knit as soon as I saw it and new it would be perfect! The rib is narrow so it doesn’t stretch too much and it’s a slightly heavier weight than my last version.
It is so comfy and luxurious to wear! I feel so elegant with this set on! I’m planning on bringing this set to BOPCon in January so I can feel like a luxury lady on vacay. I can’t wait for the conference (it’s my sister’s Business of Photography conference in Orlando next month). I’m already planning what I’ll bring and finishing up my makes for the trip. My Barbie outfit just needs hemming and my Gala gown as well. (All over on my YouTube channel if you missed it).
Look 4: Two Piece Lounge Set Wardrobe Plans
So this loungewear set is part of my Fall Winter Plans for this year. I wanted a few more pieces that could function as loungewear but still make me look put together. I work from home so this is the kind of thing I really need in my closet. I’m trying to fill all the gaps in my winter closet, one piece at a time. I love how easy this is to wear- and the color is divine!

Tencel™ Modal Spandex Ribbed Knit – Pecan
V1914 Vogue Patterns- Misses’ Cardigan, Tunic and Pants
Slim fit V-neck cardigan has button front, and neckline facings. Loose-fitting asymmetric tunic has long sleeves, uneven hemline, and stitched hems. Wide leg pull-on pants have elastic waist with drawstring, self tie, and stitched hems.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again- the shape of this pant is perfection! I’m already planning out my next one in a bamboo fleece fabric. I love the slight taper at the knee and then how it flares out. It’s very subtle but pretty. For this version I left out the casing and drawstring and kept the front falt. I serged elastic to the edge, flipped it over and topstitched.
Watch my November Makes Video to see the loungewear set worn:
This was a quick and satisfying sew. I basted all the seams on my machine and then ran them through the serger. All the hems and edges were done on the coverstitch machine. I’ve been really loving using the fusible stay tapes in my knits lately. I used 1/2″ knit stay tape at the hem and turned it up to press.
I am going to try and change up the design slightly on my next version. I want to smooth out the hem so it’s a bit more continuous. The design has more of an angled design that I think you can see best on this back view image below. I’d prefer it to have slightly more coverage so I’m going to add some length to that back left piece to make it curve around. I did coverstitch the neckline on this version- but I’ll keep the edge raw on my next version- it was unnecessary.
I hope you all had a wonderful Holiday and are looking forward to the New Year! I know I can’t wait!
We had my parents over for Christmas which was so lovely. And this year I actually got quite a few Christmas presents! My husband is not much of a shopper- I often just pick out my own presents- but this year he took my daughter to help him shop. We had a wonderful day with lots of laughter and delicious food. Hope you’re enjoying some good times with your family and friends!
I put up a little crafty video on YouTube right last week if you want to see how I decorate our little townhome. I shared all the Home decor I’ve made over the last few years from Appliqued stockings, to a tree skirt and some fun pillow. Head over there if you’d like to check it out. I have one more make to share before the year ends so hopefully I’ll get that one posted in a few days. Happy Sewing!
