Most of us have busy lives, and fitting sewing into hectic schedules is not always easy. I try and fit bits and pieces of preparation into some day,s and fit bits and pieces of sewing into other days - and sometimes I manage to do a bit of both.
In the middle of a project, I tend to focus, but at either ends, or with simple jobs, I'll often be working on one project while thinking about how to tackle the next.
After I complete my skirt, I will be wanting to make the next project - a really scary one - pants again. So today I started tracing the pattern I might use. I say might, because sometimes the muslin process tells me that this is not the right pant for now, or for the fabric.
The first job is tracing the pattern - I usually do size 8 legs, 10 hips, 12 waist (I'm a rectangle). I am not sure about the crotch, so I usually start with 8 and put the size 12 curve in as well:
|Multiple crotch lines on back of pants.|
|Side front pattern piece placed over front pattern for muslin.|
When I trace patterns, I lie them on top of thick white card - it makes the tracing easy to see.
Well, my pattern is traced and my muslin is cut - I'll sew that up after I finish my skirt - that will probably be tomorrow - hope to post Thursday - it's looking good.
Have a lovely day/evening everyone,
Sarah Liz :)
