Fibremood: BEA

Hey everyone, it has been a while but here I am to tell you about the Fibremood Bea Pants. I had the pleasure of trying them before the pattern was released. You can now find issue 12 of the magazine on the Fibremood website.

Let’s talk about the pattern. This pattern I believe is for an advanced beginner. You must know how to insert pockets, make button holes and use interfacing. I found some of the instructions a tad bit confusing even for me so I kind of made them my own way, grated with mistakes. I believe that if you are patient and take your time, you will be able to get through these. I could have made these in one day but I didn’t want to spend so much time at the machine so I made them in a span of 3 days. One day for gluing the pdf pattern, cutting it and the fabric as well. Then I spent two days sewing. Breaking it up like this helped me get through this since I was feeling a lot of anxiety sewing since it has been quite a while since I last sewed. I actually really enjoyed making these pants and they are OFFICIALLY my favorite pants now. I love how they can be super dressy AND super casual. I WILL be making more of these for my closet. I am thinking about maybe batch sewing a FEW pairs, just need the perfect fabric.

Speaking of perfect fabric, let me tell you the fabric I used on these pants is SO dreamy. The drape is perfect, the weight is perfect for the hot weather of PR and the color is BEAUTIFUL. I got my fabric from LA Finch Fabrics. The fabric is a Rayon Twill in the color plum and I am totally in love. I feel like you can style the color plum with ALMOST anything. I think plum is the PERFECT fall color and is a must in all wardrobes. 

For the top, I used a fabric from Minerva, it is a stretch sequin jersey fabric and I used THIS McCall’s pattern. Again, I absolutely loved the fabric the FIRST TIME I used it so I had to use the leftover overs to make something else. These colors together paired with a nude shoe are absolutely stunning. I definitely see more neutrals and solids in my future. 

I hope you all enjoyed this post and please make sure to follow me on IG @andreanaturally. You can also find me on the MINERVA website under Andrea Naturally as well. See you all at the next post!

-Love & Light
