Style Arc Barb - Bengaline

I made no changed to the pattern but to add 0.6cm to the full-hip and thigh outer seam. I ordered a whole roll of black 5cm elastic this time to avoid trips to the local fabric shop! Elastic waist stretch woven Barb pants: Etsy size 10-12-14
The top is just a white broderie anglaise peasant top I purchased last year. I wore it with a vest underneath as it is fairly sheer.
I also made Style Arc Willow Pants size 12 (£9, etsy). These trousers are bengaline but I wanted a non stretch woven pattern so the navy diamond print wouldn't stretch. I used a medium interfacing for the waistband and a white invisible zip. It's an easy, nifty pattern with a fashionable cigarette style and hem slits. These trousers are a little longer than the Barb pants.
With an Arenal Tshirt which requires 100% stretch knit, I used 20% and my old smaller size so I only ended up wearing this over a crop top and under a handmade iced blouse - lesson learned. Necklace is a dreamcatcher earring pendant on  sterling silver chain.
