Month of Pants (#2) + Simplicity 4079

My second post for the month of pant. I used the same Kwik Sew pattern as the first pant. However, I did a little modification to the pattern. I added 5/8" on both the front and back sides and used a little stretched fabric so this works so much better and fits better than the first one.






To wear with my pant, I made this lovely vest using simplicity4079 View E. Here are some modifications I made to the vest pattern.
(1) FBA
(2)  I lengthened by 2"
(3)I cut 4 front pieces instead of (2 fabric, 2 lining piece) suggested because I like the professional look of fabric front facing instead of lining front facing, so I ommited piece #13
(3) Also I bagged the lining to the fabric but hand sewn (slip stitched) the arm hole .....It really looks sharp this way......lol and I just love the way it turned out.
Here are some pixs of the combo.....









That's all for now fellas.....BTW I got this suiting fabric from Walmart another $1.97 buy.
Happy sewing everyone..... and a lovely weekend to all
