I’m so excited to announce the very first #sewitwithindybindy!!!
I’m hosting a sew along for the fabulous Flint Pants by Megan Nielsen!
It will start on Friday 10th May and will run for 7 days. I’ll be posting here and going live on Instagram daily on everything from cutting out the pattern to the very final hem. There will be lots of support available throughout and perhaps even a giveaway at the end! Yay!!
If you don’t have the Flint sewing pattern yet, you can get it in store here. Make sure you use the code INDYBINDY-FLINT for a 20% discount on the pattern!!
Also, I’ll be sharing lots of tips in the lead up so make sure you are signed up to my newsletter so you don’t miss any of them!
The Flint pants are SO comfy, stylish, and the pattern is beautifully constructed! They are perfect for adding your individual stamp.
These pants work with a huge range of fabrics from lightweight and drapey to structured winter weights! So to help with making your fabric choice, today I’m going to share my favourite inspiration for some of the different directions they could be taken.
I love injecting some fun into my wardrobe with a bright colour. Every time I put on a me made garment bursting with colour it puts a smile on my face and lifts my mood instantly.
Pattern and Print!
Making a statement with a bold print is something I have really come to embrace the more I sew. I used to think I should force myself to sew solids but I just can’t go past a great print!! And if it makes you happy, go for it I say!
One tone all the way!
If that’s a bit too much party for your eyes and you want to tone it down a little – literally!– I do love the idea of keeping your outfit monochrome or tonal. Ahhh soothing right?!
All the look but none of the bathroom awkwardness!
A faux jumpsuit has been on my to-make list for the longest time! Pairing the Flints with a matching top or cami would make such a versatile wardrobe addition.
For a casual look, easy breezy linen and lightweight cottons feel perfect for Spring and Summer.
Megan also has a great tutorial for removing the front release tucks. And I can’t shake the idea of doing this with the Flint pants in denim and playing with a contrast cuff.
As the temperature drops!
Can you rock a cropped pant in fall and winter? Of course! It’s all about layering and delicious fabrics of a different kind.
For a totally different look, I’m fully intending to make these pants in the drapiest fabric I can get my hands on. A fabric like this feels as though it completely ups the sophistication factor.
So do you now have a million ideas for how to use this pattern popping into your head?!
I already have four different versions in my sewing queue!
I hope you found this helpful. Let me know in the comments below if you’re going to make these up and what your plans are!
