I choose to always be a student of what I love
That's a quote from Adriene Mishler from Yoga with Adriene. Not sure if that's original with Adriene, but I love, love her yoga on YouTube and I love that quote.
Well...this is a journey. Of making my own pants. I do have two pair of wearable pants to show for recent effort. Mostly for wearing around the house I think.
First, Burda 5/2013 117A I made up in a very soft cotton pin wale corduroy. I've made this up twice before in linen. I think the corduroy is just not the right fabric. But soft and comfy. Not bad.
Then I made up another Style Arc Barb Pant in Ponte Rome. Hmm. Not the fit/look I was aiming for and the ponte stretches out. But again, they're soft and comfy and will get some wear on stay-at-home days.
No pride, right? I think the flat bum needs to be addressed horizontally through the hip instead of shaving the upper inner back leg. I plan to give that a try with this pattern in a stretch woven. You know, finding the right fabric is key I think.
|No pride, right? ...those drag line; yikes. But I pay good $ for ready made just like!|
|With top down, not too bad. Still...|
I also have sewed up some quick knits. I've discovered something. The Art Teacher look is not for me. Sigh--the time. The fabric. But it's about the learning, right?
