V9193 in a panel print

EASY TO MAKE & FUN TO WEAR

On a whim I used 2 panels to make my favorite easy peasy drop pocket pant, V9193. The style is soft and comfortable without being too full and perfect for this cotton knit with the added benefit of pockets. The yoke makes it perfect for a panel as it means the length is in two pieces.

I used 2 panels, cut the pattern pieces at random as they would only fit one way - and I love the way the pattern emerges. I used Carlotta Cotton Knit French Panel. The same print in different color ways is available too: Magma Cotton Knit French Knit Panel and Middle Earth Cotton Knit French Panel.

Here’s another version of B6521 — my current BFF shirt pattern — in flannel. I alliterate the feel of flannel with the flattering fit of this shirt. There is nothing like a flannel shirt when the seasons turn into cooler weather. My mind shifts into the zen mode of ‘chop wood, carry water’. For me it’s lug logs in for the wood stove, wash the dishes, make a flannel shirt. Personal zen.

Carol's Cotton Flannel Dress

Artbarn team member and garden designer Carol has a wonderfully rustic chic style. She used our Grand Teton Check Cotton Flannel in Sandra Betzina's versatile shirtdress design, Vogue 1541 with an added tuck and bias cut sleeves.

V1817 in a collage of cotton flannels

The garment I wore the most last winter was a version of this vest, V1817 in cotton flannel, so I decided to repeat that success in another color way. I took one yard each of 4 fabrics: Smokey Mountain Plaid, Cecil Herringbone, Gray Time Out, and Sherlock Houndstooth. Arranged the fabrics on the design table and dress form - and in some cases cut 2 versions of the same pattern piece to see the results. I pin scrap of the selected fabric on the pattern pieces and waited until the body of the garment is complete to cut out the collar.

The one red button reflects a Japanese phrase Koh-itten, describing the aesthetic of one dot of red against a neutral background.
