I love this outfit! First off, the top was challenging to trace...definitely not one you want to start out with if you are new to tracing Ottobre patterns. A few times I found myself on a line that was part of a different pattern piece for this blouse. I also had to tape my tracing paper together because the pieces are very large. The pleats add a nice touch to the blouse design, as well as the pockets. I had to cut 3 inches off the length of the blouse so it wouldn't be too long for me. I'm 5'1" so dresses and tops tend to be a little long. Level of difficulty for sewing is fairly easy.
I should have made the top in a size 36, but I think it still looks fine. I'm not wanting to retrace the pattern any time soon!
The legging pattern is fabulous! They fit perfectly and are so comfortable. I thought I might have a problem matching up the print on the side seams, but hatchi knit is pretty easy to work with. The stretch recovery feels pretty good, so I am hopeful that they won't stretch out on me too much while wearing. It doesn't feel like it will. The pattern calls for viscose single jersey with a stretch/recovery of 30%.
I made the top waistband out of some brown cotton spandex I had. I wanted that part of the legging to be from a stable fabric since it is used for an elastic casing.
