Roosevelt Island

One of the less-known places to visit in NYC is Roosevelt Island. Located between Manhattan and Queens, the island boasts alternate modes of transportation including the subway, ferries, and a cable car. If you're looking for a new view of the city, use your Metrocard and jump on the cable car for a spectacular view along the Ed Koch Queensboro Bridge.


On the south end of Roosevelt Island is the Franklin Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park. Located on the island is a Roosevelt memorial, a beautiful boardwalk lined cherry blossom trees, and of course an amazing view of midtown Manhattan and Long Island City.


For this exploration I sewed McCall's #M7690 view C. A cigarette pant with a waistband, center front fly zipper, and side seam pockets. View C also features an optional tie and belt loops. The pants were a great fit for me, I didn't need to make any alterations or adjustments. I will definitely be using this pattern in the future. The fabric I chose is a Mood Exclusive Rainbow Windows Stretch Cotton Sateen. I love the colors and the fact that this fabric has a nice stretch.


I was told that the print looks like the New York City subway map. I love my subway pants!
