New ClothesHi to all my new followers! And thank you to everyone leaving comments for my giveaway - it's really helping with design ideas!
Last week I did some tracing and cutting which has slowly been sewn together (as spare time appears amongst the mess that is our renovations). Today I finally finished!
These are the jeans I made for MiddleMiss. I used the 'Clarabella' pattern from the latest Ottobre magazine. When I got this issue and read that these pants are specifically designed for slim-hipped girls I knew it would be a well used pattern for me. MiddleMiss never fits any shop-bought bottoms (pants or skirts) unless they have adjustable waists and then they have to be so bunched up it's uncomfortable. Whenever I sew her pants/shorts/skirts I have to modify the pattern so much to fit (usually 2-3sizes difference between the waist/hip and length).
They fit her perfectly and she hasn't taken them off all afternoon!
As the jeans only had the hems and belt-loops to sew, then the button to put on, I still had enough time left to finish off the other half done project.
Even though I had planned on sewing completely from stash, I ended up having to buy more thread for these shorts for BigMiss. But that's not too bad anyway is it?
