another first

July 29, 2009

DSC00848I made a pair of trousers for Uvi yesterday. Then tinkered with it today to get what we have now.

Last Saturday was my day out fabric shopping. In the discount bin I had found a good stretchy cords-albeit only 30 cm. A basic trouser for Uvi needs a minimum of 42cm. (This I know after I made the pattern on Sunday). Anyway, I dug into my fabric stash and added the letters and the contrast hem.DSC00850 Don’t talk about the size – one size too big. Not complaining since too hot for anything other than bodies.

Now I know that I will not be buying any more trousers for Uvi…hopefully not. I think I have cracked the pattern and will alter as per design requirement. (I had to actually “crack” the pattern since all my pattern-making books and cheat sheets are back home 😦 )

A few learnings:

* plan the patch in advance. difficult to sew with the in-seam sewed up.

* do not ask Dadda for his opinion after the product is over. He may have a suggestion that you can’t overlook.

* don’t forget to have a cup of tea in between. You may be snapping at children eating your sewing peddle and breathing down your neck.

    nothing matters, but Uvi enjoys when he wears it. or it won’t matter anyway.
    A good job, as I can see it in the picture.
    Three cheers to mama, for making something out of 36 which needs to be 42. wow some skills.
