Wide Leg Pants and a Body Suit!!

Happy day to all!!!  While we here on the Texas coast were hoping for the best during a pending onslaught of a category 4 Hurricane named Harvey last Friday, my new pants brought to mind a tropical vacation, palm trees and all their windblown glory.  Anything tropical makes me feel happy, except a hurricane!!! 

All the details of the make is below:
The top is a bodysuit by @kommatiapatterns that I hacked into a cold shoulder along with changing the crotch to not have a line right across the buttocks.  You can't see it here of course!.  LOL.  I just laid the two pieces together and cut as one lower back piece instead of two.  For the sleeves, I drew the cutting line above the notches and lowered the center about 1/4" and widened the top of the sleeve by 1 inch to make is drape just a tad more then how much it would have, had I left if the regular size. 
Sew-To-Fit:  Bodysuit by @kommatiapatterns, Pattern hacked by Sew-To-Fit
Pants:  Burdastyle 3/2017 #115, by Sew-To-Fit, fabric from SmFabric.com


The pants are a wide leg, pleated trouser with pockets and an invisible zipper inside the side pocket, from the March 2017 issue of Burdastyle Mag..  I used a lovely, soft rayon crepe from SMFabric.com, which is actually on sale right now!  I put a facing in the hem and will most likely be uploading the video later on how to do the faced hem to my YouTube...so subscribe so you will get notified whenever it goes up.  
 This video playlist for all my pant fitting tutorials is here.
