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
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.
