This month's match-up is a quick and easy one!
The viscose knit fabric in the Jane kit can be made into many different garments and I chose kit three (the cami kit) to make an Abbie chemise by House Morrighan. I felt like it would show off the softness and fluidity of the fabric nicely. You can read more about the Abbie chemise in my 'mini review.'
I really loved how the chemise came out and could see how it could double up as sleepwear. With this in mind, I decided to pair it with some boy-leg cut briefs and turned to one of my favourite patterns to create them.
The Rosy Lady shorts by Cloth Habit is a free pattern which you can find the link to here. It is a very simple, one piece (plus gusset) pattern and is cut for comfort! I love wearing these briefs. In fact, I'm well overdue for making some replacement pairs for the ones I've currently worn to pieces!
The sewing is straight forward. There is a front and back seam that replaces the traditional side seam, a lining to cover the gusset seam, your choice of elastic finishing and voila, you have yourself a pair of briefs.
To match them to the Abbie chemise, I finished the leg-holes and waist with the latte coloured stretch lace (included in the kit) and I think this is a beautiful contrast to the off-white viscose knit. The bonus to this is that it creates a smooth finish that doesn't cut into your flesh and create panty-line marks. I always find underwear more versatile like this because it's not so limiting to what outer garments you can wear on top.
I'm enjoying the pairing of these two patterns. I think they both have that classic, relaxed feel and make great summer sleepwear or layering pieces for when the weather is cooler.
