I intended to do a lot of sewing today, then realised I had to hit a marking deadline- I mark A level papers every year, and as it’s now all online, I have to do some online ‘familiarisation’ marking first. It takes ages. So I didn’t actually start my sewing until 5 o’clock. But, this pattern being an absolute breeze, just over two hours later and I’m done.
And that includes having to re thread the overlocker [grrrr], unpick some crappy topstitching, and get dinner on the go… I’d already made the crotch length about 1.5″ longer [front and back], so I get a nice high waistline, and my tum is accomodated- no muffin top! The side seam is placed towards the front on these, a nice touch. I assume it would be very flattering if you have large thighs, and gives the opportunity to colour block, making the back darker, which would have a nice optical illusion effect. I don’t carry fat on my thighs [thanks mum!] just on my belly, but I still like the styling.
I’ve tried them on, they fit, and the missus says they look great. What do you think?
Next up, either the two Dixie tops, or [more likely] the intriguing Issy Miyake top…see you tomorrow!
