Well, with me, read doing nothing boring. This has been a 3-days weekend.
The first two days brought rain. No problem. I wanted to work on V1099
I was uneasy with this pattern, because of the fly: I've always found it difficult to sew a zipper on pants. On this pattern, there is a real fly. Never done that before. I was a bit scared, to tell you the truth. But the explanations were easy to follow, and in a couple of minutes, I had the most beautiful zipper I ever made :-)
The size too was an issue. I've ordered the pattern in the larger sizes, starting with 16. But when I did the jungle dress, it was clear that a size 14 would be better. So I reordered the pattern in the smaller size. To be sure, I made a muslin. It turn out that the pattern fits me with no alteration, except for the length. Size 16 would have been far too large. And the muslin will be great under a dress for the belly dance performance in June.
Btw, if you need/want the pattern starting with size16, just tell me, it is yours :-)
The pants tonight.
I'll make the hem tonight. I'll start the jacket as soon as possible.
I could have started it today, but it was sunny and some weeding was required. In addition, I knew that I would sew until bedtime, and I needed my rest. So this was not a good option.
Instead, this afternoon I painted my jeans. Another project inspired by Altered Couture. It was fun to do.
Have a ncie week all!
