I love this outfit. I need a slim Obi belt; stat.
I love how Erica B. handled this sleeve.
I think I will use pleats on the sleeve of the August Burda jacket when I make it rather than gathers...
I find it hilarious that Apple Music labeled this "Ratchet Pop"
I had little ones at my house this weekend who were enamored with the sewing room
I'm totally stealing this detail from her PJ top :)
I got new shoes (again?!?! Yes!). I thought they looked a bit "old" in the box but I wore them yesterday and they were supremely comfortable.
The brand is Soft Style; purchased from DSW.
I decided to track all of my spending for July. This is awful.
Maybe I should ignore July...
I picked apart the waistband of those slim fit pants from JC Penney.
I should have taken more photos...
I had to take in a lot, as you can see by my chalk line.
I learned something...they used 1/4" clear elastic on the seam between the waistband and facing. I like that idea. They also sewed that seam with a triple straight stitch, also interesting. And both the waistband -and- facing were interfaced. I'm stealing that too.
The pants fit GREAT at the waist! But there is too much length at CF and I am acutely aware of it. Darn it. Better start perfecting a slim-fit pant pattern...
Also, I forgot to reattach the belt loop at center back :-(
Lastly, I blogged this via email! So cool!
You can set up a unique email address in settings, write an email and POOF, it's a blog post!
I have mine set to post as a draft because who knows what foolishness might appear here otherwise...
