Alyse Wide Leg Pant by Designer Stitch

If I have a chance to live another life, I will be a 1960s or 1970s baby.  Those decades had fabulous fashion trends! But, of course that’s not gonna happen; I’m still happy though because many of these 1960s and 1970s fashions are worn today. Capris, bell bottoms, hippie clothes, shocking colors, pop art, etc.  And who will forget the wide leg pants? Not me.

Fortunately, Designer Stitch released this Alyse Wide Leg Pants.  The on-trend styling of the Alyse Wide Pants offer a choice in leg length. A wide leg
width with 3 leg lengths – 5/8ths(long shorts), 7/8ths or full length. These pants are
designed for a stretch woven fabric which will contour around the body
without being too figure hugging.    How exciting is that? Here are the details about this gorgeous sewing pattern.

Kiera Skirt

     Kiera is an interesting maxi skirt. At first, I only intend to wear it like a classic maxi skirt.
     The Designer Stitch owner, Ann Grose, was happy with my creation but she requested me to install ribbons inside the skirt and wear it with ribbons tied together underneath the skirt.  I agreed and I knew it’s only for pictures but the dramatic look of this skirt with tied ribbons inside it changed my point of view. Wow! It is much better than wearing it like a classic maxi skirt! You will see what I mean.
     Here are the details of this sewing pattern.
