When was the last time I made a dress? Seens like forever and you won’t see one in this post either.I made this pair of simplicity 1371 last summer but never got around blogging it. The issue when you try to post old makes is that is really hard to remember pattern details.
Fabric is Robert Kaufman polka dot chambray. Its really lovely but I would say this fabric lends itself better for blouses and dresses. It’s too lightweight for trousers.
I didn’t muslin because the previous version worked so well. Maybe I should have because it feels a little bit too tight! All I can say it’s that recently a lot of cake been consumed in this house. 3 months count down for the big day!
Buying my wedding dress was a super amazing experience.Would you like to hear more about it? I loved every single dress. But I been feeling a little bit unsure about my choice recently. Maybe an unconscious feeling of what if “I had made it”. Maybe nerves? Sorry, didn’t want to digress too much.
Lets go back to the trousers…
Simplicity Cynthia Rowley patterns tends to fit very well on me, straight size 12.
Pattern alterations were swapping the pleats to darts and ignoring waistband and using a facing.
I didn’t sewn the facing all way around, just a few slipstitches at the two side seams.
What is your favourite trousers pattern? if you haven’t sewn one yet, what are the patterns that make you want to sew one?
