Emerson Sewing

I’ve been busy sewing lately. Not only have I made things for the kids, I’ve made a few things for myself. I’ve made two pairs of shorts and a pair of cropped pants.

I used the Emerson Pant & Short pattern from True Bias for all three items. I made the chambray pants first and I love them. I wear them constantly. Yesterday I finished the green shorts and today I made the gray shorts. The only change I made to the pattern was increasing the length of the shots by three inches on the gray pair.

I did not love the waistband construction on these pants, and I could not have made these without a walking foot. I’m not entirely sure why I didn’t just do a simple waistband and ignore the directions, I’m never ever ever going to wear a shirt tucked in with these pants, so I wasted a lot of effort on something that will never be seen.

I am not loving my knitting projects at the moment, so I’m going to either cast on a new project or cut out a dress for Audrey tonight. I suppose I could clean my room, but there is always tomorrow for that.

Do you have any patterns you want to make for yourself? Do you also want to copy Alissa and make a Farrow Dress? Should I give up sewing and get back to knitting? It’s too hot to make any decisions.

  1. I am going to make a another (black linen) pair of Emerson Pants and a khaki linen pair of shorts. I agree with you on the waistband construction. You look great! Yes it’s too hot to make any decisions.
