It’s been a long time, well ive actually made something wearable but unfortunately its not for me its for my boyf as a valentines prezzie awww. <3
I used kwik sew 3506 i cut a medium it was massive i took in a couple of inches. the most annoying bit was the facings-i get mixed up with them alot left right front back confusion. as it was valentines and i wanted to put my stamp on it, i tried to stitch I <3 U on the inner pocket flap.
does anyone know of a good book to help the drafting of muslins, converting measurements to drafted clothing? and not hating the fabrics i have thats a big problem for me. but i feel newly inspired by all the gorgeous pieces that you ladies are creating
hope to see you all soon
This is the second time I have made this shirt for Mr Ooobop!, using Butterick 5007. The last one was quite literally a year ago. I added some contrasting detail this time. Under the collar, the inside collar stand, under side of pocket flaps and inside cuffs.
I also added some bias trim on the hem to retain some length but I love how it has ended up defining the shirt-tails and adding some more popping red!
I made a couple of adjustments namely to the chest, shoulders and sleeve length but the most time-consuming thing of all on this shirt was the topstitching and flat felled seams.
Defo worth the effort though! More info over at ooobop!
I found a bunch of these Simplicity books wedged in with the patterns. This one just tickled me pink! Denim is worn everyday out here even to church on Sundays. I’m guessing this catalog must be 70s. I cannot find a date on it. Here’s a few pages. Enjoy!
Can't you feel the love!
Don't you love his patchwork pants!! I want to see those at the next rodeo!
Love the red details on the right jacket. Who doesn't have trim that needs used up.
Evening gowns anyone?
Are you feeling the need to sew with denim yet? I am impressed with some of the details on some of these garments. Do you like to sew with denim?
