I haven’t posted any new projects for a little while. But I’ve still been sewing, although time has been limited because we went on a trip to visit family and the weather has been so delightful that we’ve been outside a lot.
I spent about a week making some capris for me from my Angela Wolf jeans pattern. I just finished them up yesterday, and I am not impressed. I haven’t been happy with the crotch in any of the jeans I’ve made from her pattern, and these are the worst.
I know the crotch is too long (I have a very short rise in the front) and I’ve been slowly shortening it with each pair. On this pair, I think I should have shortened the zipper part instead of the part under the zipper because now the zipper goes down too low and since the zipper doesn’t bend, there are strange wrinkles there in the crotch.
I was so mad about it after I finished them, but I got over it fast and I’m going to try a new pattern. Oliver + S started carrying other designer’s patterns besides just their own, and when I saw these Jamie Jeans I was very intrigued. The fit is exactly what I’m going for.
I bought the pattern last night and put it together. Now I’m trying to alter it and then I’ll get ready to start. So that’s what I’ll be working on for the next little bit.
