These are basically instant gratification sewing, three patterns pieces and an elastic waist which sits flat when worn. These are a straight size 14, I added extra length but ended up removing it.
I ordered bengaline from StyleArc to make these up but had to throw it in the bin. I didn't check the fabric properly and I cut them with the stretch going the wrong way - in my defense the stretch on bengaline is parallel to the selvedge which is the opposite to almost every other stretch fabric.
When I first put these on I wasn't sure I liked them, but they're actually getting a lot of wear. Another project off my sewing table and into my wardrobe.
So my plan to clear the decks in September has worked really well. I've finished all the projects I had in various stages of constructions - the link seems to be that they're all really basic and I think I just lost interest in them. I have a couple more to show you and then it's on to my plans for October. I also got a bit click happy on the StyleArc website last night and I can't wait for my new patterns to arrive.
