Choir Sundays 08 #9

This Month's Choir Colors: muted green w/ black

Jacket: The herringbone-weave Bistro Jacket by Loes Hinse

Top: The hot-off-the-sewing machine Jalie 2682 sleeveless top in the martini-olive jersey knit I got from Gorgeous Fabric's last sale. This was much nicer rayon jersey than the black and white stuff I got at Hancock' got along much better with my machines. I got tons of compliments on it today; you can bet I'll be making that pattern up again soon.

Pants: Modified Loes Hinse Oxford Pant. I altered the legs of the pattern a bit to make them slightly boot-cut looking. I've tweaked the fit on the pattern since I made these; I want to make up another pair (I've got some cotton/lycra black/white stripe cotton that may end up there) with the tweaks added. The fabric is a very nice RPL that I got from Emma OneSock absolutely ages ago...but then, I made those pants absolutely ages ago, too.

Next week we'll be dressed differently for Easter; I'm hoping to get choir photos, too.


  1. Great outfit and as said on PR, I absolutely love the Jalie top. What great basic in a great colour!

  2. Very nice! We once had a receptionist who liked to use the word "stunning."

    I'll use it here: You look stunning!

    Great job and I love the three pieces together.
