Summer Essentials Sew-Along: Clam Diggers & Co.

There´s been a change of plans, or really, there´s been an addition to the SESA. As I started looking for a great pattern for the jacket, the thought of a coordinated suit occurred to me. Now, this is something I have never owned. A suit seems very adult to me, but I will turn thirty next year, so an adult look is perhaps not totally inappropriate? I found the perfect jacket, and the perfect pants, so I stitched these up today (the pants, I mean).

They are made of IKEA linen (I can´t really recommend using this fabric as it is a bit itchy) and  it is a Burda Magazine pattern.

Very easy to follow, and with the great advantage of both pockets and a side zipper. Perfect! You see, I´m not much of a front zipper gal.  I really want to make some capris as well (inspired by Sarah), and with shorts already finished, my “bottom-sewing” days should soon be over for this sew-along!

    These are great! Totally versatile. I saw that pattern too and I thought: so elegant. 🙂 A suit is always handy.
