Another palazzo pant refashion

Although I haven't posted here for a while I have still been sewing, in my much reduced, spare time. I have been enjoying making up some vintage patterns that I have recently found at various events in Edinburgh, using vintage fabric pieces, and to a much lesser extent any that I have in my very small stash. Amongst these I have one refashion.

Found on a sale rail, one pair of palazzo pants, a great source for me, for fabric harvesting. When I work with patterns I very often decide to alter it and make again, or sometimes I just like bits and pieces of different patterns and hack them together!

This pink top is a refashion and a pattern hack of Simplicity retro 1590 and the 30s top featured in series 2 of the Great British Sewing Bee! And I'm wearing it today. For a look at the makes, leading up to this pink top have a look at my post here!
