Guess what? I’ve started making a pair of trouser for myself. Yes. Very exciting for me anyway. They’ve got a rear welt pocket, front flap pockets and a fly front. Cool. Anyway, I’ve traced and mostly sewn them up in calico with just the waistband to do before I can check fit. I’m using BS 02/2011/104 :
Of course, just when I get to sew something for myself life happens and, suffice it to say the pants are on hold for a week. Instead AB needs a frock for a wedding on Saturday next. It won’t be a biggie cos she’s five and it’ll be fun to sew up I hope.
This morning we dove into my pink fabrics collection with AB happily comparing colour combinations for half an hour before deciding on three (butterflies ARE mandatory at a wedding supposedly). Tomorrow I need to find a pattern.
Oh and I found this the other day. Isn’t it amazing? Its the 1969 version and in fab nick.
