Pattern: Jalie 3243 size T with no adjustments
Fabric: Pinstripe cotton linen blend from The Confident Stitch. Sold out. Sorry!
I’ve been gone for awhile!
I’m glad to be sewing again, and this simple pattern was a good project to get me back into the sewing saddle. The pants are super simple to sew and I made no adjustments to the fit. I used my little Janome Magnolia to sew them and my Bernina 800 overlocker. The backstich button doesn’t work on the Janome, so I had to manually do that. It reminded me of when I first learned to sew on my mom’s beat up Kenmore.
If you haven’t ever made pants or are looking into making a very easy pair, this is your pattern, my friend. It has a simple elastic waistband which doesn’t look too home made up close! They look a lot like a linen pair of pants I saw at Nordstrom’s a few months ago.
I love this fabric that was sent to me from The Confident Stitch back in May before I left on my trip. But it seems it’s all sold out. Oh well. I seem to have waited much to long to get these made. I have some more projects in the line up and I am going today to see if I can sign up for an advanced costuming course at the local college. I need to start doing something with my sewing again. I’m going to be starting my bridal sewing and alterations business back up, and I will be posting more about it, soon.
Also, Richard found my Bernina and all of its attachments in a small closet at the new place. I am so happy about this because there is no way I can make bridal gowns on my clunky old machines. Well, I guess I could, but it would be a real drag!
