Hello Peeps! It's Michelle here and I had the amazing opportunity of hosting the January sewing party on Instagram! The pattern of the month was the Hickory Ensemble by Mood. This is s 2 piece unisex pattern.

Here is Mori and her . This is a little upgrade from her work for home pajamas and the pattern whipped up so easy. I'd say that's a winning combination.

The fabric I chose is so amazingly soft, you would never want to take this off. Mellow Rose Bamboo Stretch French Terry/Product : 320912 Helmut Lang Dusty Rose 1x1 Tubular Cotton Ribbed Knit/Product : 420862

My idea for this hickory pants.

Not let me share what I did here.-You saw the quilting on Instagram, that was a chore but worth it.

-Although I had the softest terry from @moodfabrics My fabric choice was not ideal for the look I was creating. I had a “Tim Gunn” make it work conversation with myself. The quilted pieces where too stiff compared to the soft terry fabric, so it did not lay the way I wanted it to in the bulky seams. -I shortened the length to crop the top and the sleeves.

-I extended the top length for my cardi, cut the center front open, added a collar and fringe.

-I added ribbed cuffs to the pants instead of elastic.

-I’m going to change the waistband elastic to drawstring , like I wanted to do originally.

Thanks for sewing along and remember to post your pictures on Instagram and tag us:
