I bought an issue of BS magazine earlier this year because I HAD to have the cardigan pattern and the moto jeans.
And then I opened it.
And then I saw the pattern sheets.
And then I folded the sheets and never opened the magazine again. I don't even know where it is since we moved!!
The November issue previews are up. This jacket is FREAKING AMAZING!!!!! I would probably make it in grey/black too. OMG or what about a winter white ponte!?!
I hope this is released as an individual downloadable pattern. I will pay $5.40 for this even though I can get the entire magazine for a little more than twice that.
Magnificently less exciting:
And what on earth is happening with her skirt?!:
Anyway, my pants are coming along. I did manage to fix my zipper - yay! This morning I sewed on the front waistband. I'll try to get through a little more tonight and in the morning...and finish up this weekend.
I have come to find the most time consuming part of pants is the waist treatment.
Interface (okay, I should do this when I cut the fabric out!)
Add bias tape to facings (I like this better than simply serging it)
Do all the trimming/neatening up
Stitch in the ditch
Buttonholes/hook & eye/etc
My pants pattern from Butterick 5908 has the easiest (for me) instructions for installing the fly zipper. It looks SO amazing and very ready to wear. I think that's my favorite part of the pants...especially with a pop of color at the zipper. This pair has a purple zipper - it's like a party in your pants, I'm telling ya! LOL!
Hopefully by Sunday you'll be seeing finished pants and a new shirt!
