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.
