Jazzy Jasper Vest & Jodhpur Pants

Slightly cooler temps, a little bribe=some a ton of pictures to share.  Let's start from the bottom...




I added topstitching around the side panel and where the upper/lower legs are joined to give the details a little more definition.  


I also stitched the sweet tag that is included with the pattern on to the side of the pants.

The lower leg panel is cut on the bias so while it is snug fitting, there is plenty of give to make the pants comfortable to wear.

The Jasper Jodhpur pants are paired with the Not-So-Plain-Tee from Patty Young's book Sewing Modkid Style.  The top is a size 4 sewn with 1/4" seams, size 5 length sleeves, and size 10 length for the body.  I know that seems like a lot of length but the style of the shirt is shorter and I wanted a longer look.  There's definitely more than enough length...I could of  gotten away with the 8/9 or even the size 7.;)  If you want to read about how I did the butterflies, look HERE.


The Jasper Vest is the perfect topping for this outfit! 




I love the buttoned tab on the back.  I made a size 4 for a more fitted look.  BK could have used a little extra length as she is long waisted. But it's still cute!

  1. I love the pants - they're a lovely alternative to the standard pull on elastic waisted ones. Are they tricky to make?

    1. Surprisingly, no! You have to spend a little bit of time when sewing in the side panel but otherwise the pants go together pretty quick and easy.:) Thanks!

  2. those pants are so cool, you know the other day when I quickly glanced at their new patterns I didn't realize the details & fabulous shape of these pants... I don't sew very many pants at all, but these pants are catching my eye...

  5. Cute look! I'm not normally sold on this style of pant, but I really like these. I think they are interesting with out being too big. Nice job on the whole thing.

  6. Oh no! Now I want this pattern! Same as Sarah - I had already decided that I would not like these. You are a bad influence, Cindy.

  7. Lovely jodhpurs, and what a neat idea with the inverted pleat - great pattern! I'd like these for myself - if I only didn't have hips :-) ...

    1. Ha! Yeah...the shape of the pants would definitely be comfortable for me too but not so flattering! I'll leave this look to the young girls.:) Thanks, Uta!

  9. I really wish I could convince my girls to wear pants more often. What a great combo Cindy. I love the vest, that zip angle is fabulous.

  10. Noooo! I didn't even give this pattern a second glance... until now... The vest caught my eye but never thought I would make the pants just looking at the package. Thanks for the detail shots, I will now be reconsidering my position;)

    1. It goes that way sometimes! I look at how many O+S patterns I've passed up and then end up purchasing. Seeing the different way people sew them up can really change your mind!:)
