The White 2-Piece Pant Set

AtlantaSewingStyle just finished our very first summer photo shoot over the weekend. We made an outfit featuring all white and another using Ankara.

This is my white look or what I like to call my White Party look.

Because my last two looks for our group shots were both maxi dresses, I really wanted to make a pants outfit this time.

I originally thought of making a jumpsuit but I still have the white crepe jumpsuit that I made a few years ago using Vogue 1506…… See Here. I thought I’d get more wear out of white seperates than a white jumpsuit.

For the pants I used Mccall’s 7757 and for the top I used Mccall’s 7786 View A. Previously made here and here.

The fabric is a white mid weight cotton tshirt knit picked up locally from the Fabric Joint!

Pattern Adjustments/Changes

Pants

  • When I previously made this pattern I had cut off the top of the pattern at the foldline because I added a seperate waistband instead of going with the folded down waistband. I add a seperate elasticized waistband this time also. The waistband I added is 2 inches tall. This time I also removed about 1.5 inches from both the front and back crotch height so that the waistand stopped right around my belly button.
  • I lined the pants.
  • I omitted the pockets because of how clingy the fabric is and I didn’t want to add bulk to my upper thigh area.

..

Top

  • No changes other than I serged both the bottom edge of the top and the ruffle instead of hemming. I wish I had lined the bodice but I didn’t have enough fabric for that.
  • I originally cut a size 12 but it was too big around the chest area. I recut a size 10 and grated out to a 14 below the waist.

Final Conclusion

I really loved wearing this outfit. It was just as easy to wear as it was to make.

I’ll be posting my Ankara look in a couple of days but until then I’ll leave you with a few more of my favorite pics from the shoot.
