marcy sewn: Ace Olive stretch woven in V9303

V9303 is my favorite go-to pant in Ace Olive Stretch Woven. (This pattern has just been discontinued, so I recommend getting a copy while you can). This pandemic fall I'm craving the color green, and wanting comfort, style and pockets in the clothes I make and wear. Our ACE Stretch Woven fabrics are pant perfect - they are smooth so things slide on/over easily and have great stretch and recovery. The stretch runs lengthwise, so cut on the cross grain so the stretch goes around the body.

I tweaked the pattern - eliminating the lower hem pieces, cutting all in one. Yes, made completely new pattern pieces, adjusting for fit, so the next pair will sew up quickly.

Marcy's Duvet

Getting ready for cool weather ahead, I made a new duvet and pillow cases.

The duvet fabrics, Black Butte Japanese Linen and Natalia Japanese Cotton Blend. The pillow cases: Tai Stripe Japanese Cotton, Green Lily Lyocell/Cotton, Lucia Japanese Cotton.

The duvet front and back each took 5 yards. The finished duvet measures 82" x 84" (for a full/double size). Used a 24" zipper for the opening. The pillow cases take 1 yard each - I used purchased ones for measurements. Easy and very satisfying sewing - took just one day!
