Sunday Chat Time again..
Thank you everyone for your recent well wishes - flares come and go with me every so often, and this one is now going - which suits me :)
So I have been organising my sewing projects today. I have cut out a stretch cotton sateen skirt in a grey colour - I have decided I don't really like this stretch cotton sateen as it wrinkles so easily (more than ordinary cotton or linen- or maybe that's just the cotton sateen available at Spotlight) I just want to get it out of the stash and used!
While I am working on the skirt, I will also start work on a trouser muslin. The pattern I am going to trial is Burda 6982:
This is a classic straight leg pant, with a waistband that seems to sit very close to the waist. I haven't had much to do with Burda patterns, so I thought I would try this pants pattern. I understand the cut is different to that of the big 4. Certainly the measurements indicate so with a slightly larger waist to hip ratio. Which is what I need. So I shall soon see whether these work better for me than some of the other patterns I trialled during last years tedious trouser muslin learning curve :).
By the way, this trouser pattern has not been reviewed on PR - so no helpful hints about the good and bad points of this pattern. No pictures either - I find pictures of garments made by real sewers very informative about how the pattern actually looks when made up.
And Anne, if you are reading, Accordion left a reply for you on yesterday's comments about putting elastic in the back of a trouser waistband. This is what she said:

So that is this week's sewing organised (the next few weeks, really). I'll also post the two skirts I have made that are sitting waiting patiently to be blogged about. And I need to do another me made day for me made May. And tell you about my personal style consultation - I had a feeling I was dressing "not me" so I was quite surprised to find out that was so!!
Wishing you all the best for your week to come - and your sewing week to come:)
