Hepburn Pants

Preview Image: 

April's Pattern for Sew My Style 2019 is the Hepburn Pants from Wardrobe by Me.  The pattern calls for fabric with some stretch which I wasn't very excited about.  I don't want pants that stretch; I prefer cotton that relaxes over time.  So, off I went to Colorado Fabrics to figure out what I was going to use.  I settled on a recycled polyester bottom weight.  I justified buying polyester by reminding myself that it was recylced.  

 

Givre Shirt

Here is my version #1 of the Givre Shirt by Deer and Doe.  I cut this as a size 36 even though I measure a 34.  It is made from scraps.  Who knows what type of material.  It feels very much like the top is plastic and the bottom is some sort of blend.  

 

This is version #2.  I cut it the same size.  This is a heavier weight, and I know it is cotton/lycra.  Both of these are pretty darn tight.  I normally don't wear a lot of tight clothes.

 

 

Yikes.  

Sew My Style 2019 is ON

I will be sewing the Givre T-shirt this month.  My machine's in the shop, but my serger is ready to go!

 

Hopefully, I'll get some photos uploaded tomorrow.

 

Sew My Style 2019

 

For the holidays, we got a family Spotify account, so I have been reliving my youth.

 

Mostly, I've been listening to the Pet Shop Boys and New Order.  WooHoo.
