PineCrest Fabrics – Activewear Set Volume 2!

When PineCrest Fabrics reached out to me about working with some of their new fabrics, I was so excited to say yes. Of course! I was lucky enough to work with their Olympus Knit fabrics when I was pregnant, and I was so impressed with the quality of their product. I thought that it would be exciting to mark 6 months with this new collaboration – a fun milestone to work around, especially since the last post I’d done with them was about how I worked out while pregnant.

Pink Portobello Trousers

When I get a vision in my head, I don’t let go of it very easily, and these pink Portobello Trousers are a testament to that tenacity. I purchased this fabric from IndieSew alongside a beautiful cupro jersey in my favorite shade of fern green. For some reason, I always get excited to make something green to wear on St. Patty’s Day, and I knew that the cupro jersey would make a really great Adrienne Blouse to wear this year. This rayon crepe was available on IndieSew at the time, and the colors complemented that fern green so well that I couldn’t resist making an outfit out of it. A few hiccups and unexpected issues (and inches!!) later…. Here are my Portobello Trousers!
