My hubby is not one to toss around insincere compliments, so when his eyes lit up as I modeled this outfit I knew I had a winner.
McCall's 8003, is a close-fitting knit top with a cut out on the upper chest. I choose to sew that portion in a stretch lace remnant I had purchased from SR Harris.
Now, let's chat about the pants! The pattern is a Sandra Betzina design, Vogue 1411, issued in 2014. It is currently out of print (OOP), but Vogue Patterns occasionally puts the OOP patterns on sale so sign up for their sale notifications if you're interested in purchasing the pattern.
I'm glad I didn't as cropped pants have been in style for some time, and these now look to be the right length.
Sandra Betzina Vogue patterns when they are on sale, as I've found she is sometimes slightly ahead of trends. There have been patterns I've passed on, and then a year or two later the design is all over the place. This pant pattern is one that I'm glad I hung onto as it fits me well, is still in style, and will fit my new lifestyle beautifully.
