Tara Top and Mary Trousers

Hi guys! It's been a while huh?

Have you heard of the Sewing Around the World series, hosted by Schnittchen? Every month, a blogger from a different country present's their creation from a Schnittchen pattern. This August, it's my turn! I was beyond excited when Nadja invited me to take part in this! They have a wide range of sewing patterns and I had a really hard time choosing which one to sew up. Well, I ended up choosing the Tara Top and Mary Trousers, and I couldn't be any happier. :)

For the longest time, I've been looking for the perfect culottes pants pattern. (They are so in right now, I keep seeing them pop up in my Pinterest feed!) I have already tried several and they are either too wide or too pajama-ish for my liking. The Mary Trousers are perfect!

The side and patch pockets add so much to the style - eliminating any pajama-ish feeling. The details in these trousers are impeccable.

 I did have to shorten the length a bit though - which is necessary thanks to my height. For my version, I used a grey tweed from my stash. I only had 1 yard of this material, so I am so glad I was able to make it fit!

For the top, I tried to find the perfect fabric to compliment my Mary Trousers. I chose this white birds on black by Belleboo Designs. What do you think?

Overall I am pretty happy with how my outfit turned out. They both fit really well and are a pleasure to sew. Everything came together so nicely and the instructions were clear. 

I am already looking forward to sew another of these!

Thanks Nadja and Silke for having me! :)
