This was the second time I've made this pattern, but I completely forgot everything about the construction. So I had to do several steps twice and there were a lot of furrowed brows. Frankly, the instructions leave something to be desired.
The trousers were made for a friend and she stopped by today to try them on. I won't post photos of her modelling them until they're completely done, but I think the fit was good. Close enough for gov't work in any case!
|Using the laundry drying rack as a model, so classy.|
I recently discovered the plastic Burda tracing sheets. They're not bad. I wasn't convinced at first, but I especially like them for storage.
And a top to go with the enormous skirt...
The top and the pants use fabric from stash, but the skirt was a big purchase: seven meters! On sale; oh yeah, you know I waited for that!
Sewing with cats, always a pleasure!
