My Sewing Lesson This Weekend: Pants
So far I am keeping to my promise. I am sewing a few new items per week. This weekend I worked on pants. We know I don't like patterns and instructions. The other two things I don't like are darts and elastic. So I set out to make fitted, dartless, elastic free pants.
I have had this fabric more than 10 years. I bought it to make myself some pants. That never happened.
They look pretty good on Shantavia. I can't wait until I get to suit jackets. This is going to make a wonderful pants suit.
Jacquelyn's pants are little higher waisted. I made these from a vinyl placemat. Just something a little different. I didn't mean to use contrasting thread on the bottom, but she will have to live with it.
She found a cute little jacket I bought a few months ago that hadn't been claimed. Now all she needs is that Gucci bag that has been on my list for ages.
I made a few more pairs of pants, but this is all I am sharing today. I will probably make all the kids some pants before I move on to my next lesson.
