Birkin Flares & B6355





This is the first time in a while I have made a entire outfit !
In the beginning it was just about making a wearable muslin for the Birkin Flares . 
In the end it turned into a entire outfit ... WIN !


About the Birkin Flares ...

I had been watching this pattern for a while . I found out about these during the testing phase , so I had to wait until they released . I knew they would be a hit and I was right ! 
The fit and flare of these jeans really make them a classic !
Baste and Gather really did a wonderful job designing these for the everyday women .
They have the perfect amount of comfort and support !

Her pattern can be found here 



The construction of these babies was relatively easy . The instructions where clear and concise. 
 I did make a few mistakes but I was able to correct them . I did decide to add 4 inches to the pants ... this was to accommodate my legs and a 5 inch heel :)   SUCCESS!!
I ommited the buckles and rivets this time around but I plan to tackle them with the REAL pair !



I do plan to go down a size because I want a snugger fit ! That was the purpose of making a wearable muslin before ... and i get two pair of Jeans :) 

I made these from a ponte knit that was gifted to me ! It really has a vintage feel to it . 


Once I finished the Jeans I quickly realized that I had nothing to wear with it . 
A perk I can not get use to  is being able to make new clothes when you need them, so I did ...

It seemed to go perfect with the style of these Jeans !!
The only change I made was to omit the gathered sleeves 



I decided to go with a chiffon which proved to me a little bit of a headache... but I made it thru !





I decided to make a simple lace bodice to go under the top. 









I love the entire look !!
I cant wait to make my REAL pair of Birkin Flare .. I plan to make them out of White Jean!



Until Next Time !!!

  3. Girl what do you mean real? These look real and wearable to me. But hey, It wouldn't hurt to have a pair in white denim. They are so cute.
