I’m bringing back the leisure suit!!

Yes I am!! Today I made Simplicity 2309 and Jalie 2909 out of the stretch denim that I bought at Mood. These two pieces are going to be my two “sewist’s choice” for the Pattern Review Wardrobe contest. I know a denim suit might be a little cheesey, but I actually really like it. Plus the two pieces are great separates.

Here’s the leisure suit:

And here’s the separates–or at least one of them”

The jacket is Simplicity 2309. I usually make a size 12, but I made a 10 in this pattern. The pattern calls for unfinished edges on the flounce, but I chose to finish these edges by sewing the two flounce pieces together before attaching them to the jacket. I really like this pattern. It’s quick, easy, and produces good results.

The pants are Jalie 2909 again. Love this pattern. I added a cuff and hemmed them at a semi-capri length. I’m looking forward to cruising around Boonetowne in my brand new leisure suit. Just wait, soon all the cool cats will be wanting leisure suits too!
