I've also not been feeling so great the last few days but now i'm on tablets im on the mend!
yesterday I popped out for lunch with Lauren from Tea and Crumpets
We had great fun chatting about sewing and eating really good food, I put a couple of questions to her relating to my dissertation too which I will definitely be talking about at a later date!
We talked a lot about trousers and I am definitely going to make it a goal to make some soon! They really aren't that hard but I find ready to wear ones useless for me. I'm long waisted with tiny short legs with a small waist and big hips and thighs (not painting a pretty picture here huh?)
But I find trousers end up being low waisted with a tiny crotch depth, too big on my waist and too long! This is why i've been contemplating trousers for so long. I've decided to have a practice on some Palazzo style pj bottoms. I bought some silk a while ago at Goldhawk Road and I would like to do a muslin before using that.
Very 1930s movie star I hope! I wanna use new look 6900 perhaps the top too but i'm not sure on if I want a wrap top like the short sleeved one in 6922 or something different.
Anyway here are a few of the patterns I have for shorts and trousers in my stash...
Ok! I know the last ones a jumpsuit but I kind of really want one! What are your thoughts on Trouser making? Any Votes for any particular pattern?
