Work with what you have

I’m tidying my digital workspace today. I created a pin board called Pattern Arsenal so I can see which patterns I have to work with as I attempt some capsule inspired fall wardrobe planning. I have some serious holes in there. Seriously! Where are the bottoms??

Sewing bottoms is a fear that I need to face. My struggle comes from not knowing the right fabrics to use abd feeling intimidated by topstitching details.

Planned for some birthday sewing is a Sutton blouse with a lace back panel in  a Cotton & Steel plaid from my stash. I could see it working nicely with the Ultimate Trousers *if* I had the right fabric, but I’m not sure what that is. Maybe a camel colored stretch knit suitable for bottoms? What would that be? Give me your suggestions and links for where to buy it.
