You may remember this OOP pattern from TSW - the Kinenbi top and pants. The top is definitely more memorable than the pants because it was such a signature asymmetrical piece from TSW, one of those very big shirts with an Asian feel.
The pants are sort of interesting, I think. Very narrow pull-on pants. Evidently I made them years ago and they were too short. Now they seem OK, at least with sandals.
Oh, yeah, I might have been taller then.
These are made with a limited quantity microfiber. I had too little to make any other pair of pants without piecing the crotch. I've done that, but not today.
This microfiber has been in my stash perhaps as long as this pattern has been there. It's a very dark charcoal-chocolate color. Let's call it crude oil.
Despite my strong preference for natural fiber fabrics, especially linen, these pants were a dream to sew and they feel wonderful on.
Here they are with my Katherine Tilton top from Butterick 5891.
I was thinking that this top has a different silhouette but now I see that it is very similar in shape to the Hibiscus shirt from TSW. The pattern pieces and construction techniques are completely different. Both have unique (and different from each other) peplums. Both have a single unexpected pocket (again different from each other). Both fit through the chest and shoulders then flare over the hips/tummy. Both were great fun to make.
Actually I like both tops a lot.
