Mini Wardrobe -- Finished Contest Entry Safari Style
The tank top is a modified Kwik Sew 2517. It would have to be -- that pattern is actually a dress. I've made this tank top lots of times and I really love it. For this one, I used the original armhole curve, but I've also modified the pattern to make a racerback tank top as well.
The pants are Jalie 2908 stretch jeans. For these, I added expanding cargo pockets to the back and thighs and narrowed the pants legs so they'll fit smoothly into my boots. I love these pants. I wore them all day yesterday and they are oh-so-comfy.
The button down shirt is Jalie 2322 done in a stretch linen. Also a comfortable fabric. I wish I'd bought more than just enough for one shirt.
And the vest is Butterick 5616 made in the same stretch sateen as the pants. With extra pockets.
I am really loving all of these outfits. Different shoes give a whole different look to them, too.
