LONG TIME, NO POST
How time flies when you’re working full time…
Well, I spent Memorial Day, my first paid day off in nearly five years…sick. Not incapacitated, just a little sinus infection. I did not want my day off to go to waste, so I spent the day sewing. I made my first pair of pants ever. With the help of my sewing consultant, Jene’, I now have a nice pair of brushed blue denim capris.
I am a very visual person, however, so there was a fair amount of comedy as I tried to follow the lame pattern pictures. (I mean, how many times can you rip off pockets, sew them on, rip them off, sew them on…) A great deal of the fun involved the inseam. At one point I was so confused about how the pants should look, we had to pull a pair of pants out of the dryer for visual reference.
They are finished, however, and they do look nice. One mental note to self… even if the seams are on the inside, when using dark fabric…white thread isn’t the best idea. I’ll know better next time. And the shirt I made looks great, but it’s a little too short and will need a ruffle or addition on the bottom so I can raise my arms without exposing anything important.
So, that was my adventure Monday. How was your long weekend?
