Every day when it gets to 3.15 I have to go to school to pick the youngest up and my creativity for the rest of the day is limited. Certainly no time to sew in the studio.
I always feel annoyed with myself that I have almost wasted the day and not sewn the trousers that I had planned for the last fortnight.
Well today I have.
Yes, this used to be a duvet cover. they will be used as house trousers / possibly pyjama bottoms so don’t look out for me in the real world.lol.
These were relatively simple.
I cut the 4 pieces of the pattern out.
Then I realised that 1 back and 1 front piece should have been cut from the ‘right’ side of the material so I cut 2 more pieces. Doh.
For the sewing up, I didn’t follow the pattern. I followed the tutorial on this blog ( scroll down and on the left theres a tutorial on repurposing girls pants ). This is a really good blog for making sewing seem really easy. ( even I can follow it ). There are some really pretty things here.
Look how wide these trousers are at the bottom, aren’t they fab?
The only problem I have is that I made a size # which is supposedly larger than my size, thinking they would be really loose. It would have been nice if I actually needed to put the elastic in to keep them up. I think my problem is that they aren’t actually on my waist, slightly lower, as it does say on the pattern. Next time I will make them higher.
