Since I finished that UFO, I allowed myself to start another project. And I’m making jeggings. Yes, jeggings. And I think this makes me the biggest hypocrite b/c I hate the whole super tight pants trend. But to stay true to myself, I promise to always wear something that covers my butt in them.
Here’s my inspiration- a very clean style by Vince. I really heart Vince. And if I had the money to buy designer cloths, I would be all over that line.
I was going to use McCall 6173, but I was too paranoid to trust their draft. I know I’m bad, but I hate making muslins. I’ll do anything to avoid it. I had my pattern all traced and ready to go, but I just couldn’t cut my fabric. I kept having visions of nightmare crotch curves, lol. So I ended up drafting them myself. I used my knit pant block that was developed from a BWOF pattern. I knew all the important stuff –waist to hip area- fit and I worked from there to make them tight and skinny.
They’re currently in progress and I hope to be able to share soon. But here’s a sneak peak.
That’s the hem w/ the zipper on the side. Sorry if the photo is kinda cheesy, but I tried, lol.
In other news, I have a T project. She likes to sew, so I’m teaching her the ropes. Here’s a quick and easy project she made. I cut and directed, but she sewed the whole thing. I used post its as a seam guide- a great tip that I got from Debbie’s blog- to make sure she kept her seams straight. It really did help her control her seams.
It’s just a simple drawstring bag made out of some stash red satin she picked out.
