Me Made May Days 23 and 24
Today, I decided that I had to wear the Me Made shorts again to show my tutor at my dressmaking class all the problems I had with the fitting and to garner her advice. To cheer myself up I decided to carry my phone in this little Me Made purse. It has leaves appliqued on it as I had small scraps of brown and green fabric left over from making tree bags to sell at a scout fete. I may have overdone the 'ticking fabric' look today!
After discussing things with my tutor I decided to take the side seams in a bit on my 'proper' trousers so I spent the lesson redrafting my original pattern and cutting out the fabric.
These darts are now very, very big!
This shows the side seam that I have now tapered in by half an inch. Worryingly though my measuring and bad maths is now suggesting that the waist measurement will be far too small. Looks like I will be putting those darts back to their original size after all!
My lovely brown fabric all ready and waiting to be made into wonderfully fitted trousers!!!!
Yesterday I wore this Me Made dress which cost me fifteen pence to make. I didn't realise until I tried to find the original post that I made this way back in 2010. Doesn't time fly when you're having fun!
