My next project was this jacket that I could wear to work. I loved the colors and the heaviness of the woven material. It is a simple pattern to make but the material is what makes it look so nice. Lessons learned - woven fabric is a pain to cut and sew - NEVER pull the loose thread! I really like this jacket and I have worn it several times.
I decided that I wanted to make a pair of fitted pants next. I loved them - fit where they should - loose where they should be ect. I again followed the pattern and soon realized that I needed to cut the pant length longer - of course I realized it too late. I will only be able to wear these slacks with flats. Oh well - I wear them a lot. Next time........
You will never see photo's of me wearing my pants - I have a steadfast rule ----- photo's only of the waist up! I am who I am - I am overweight. Someday I hope to not be but that is a mute point - I am happy and the most important person in my life - loves me the way I am.
I would love your comments and suggestions regarding my sewing projects.
