So why then when I needed to make a white pair of trousers, currently a wardrobe staple missing from my closet, did I do this....?
Please excuse the photos, I couldn't decide whether standing in the doorway with the light behind me was better than in the semi-dark with door shut. Also I had been wearing the trousers all morning to test comfort when sitting down etc so they look a bit creased but they passed all my testing and I've ended up being quite pleased with the end result.
I found it quite awkward trying to show the left leg and my right front hip at the same time but I managed to get them all in.
My excuse is that I am still learning how to use the machine and this is just for practice!! Ahem!!
Well I now have several pairs of really well fitting, comfortable trousers so the next step is to make some for Hub. He bought some fabric and I've made a muslin but he is so picky I'm trying to get up the courage to make a start and keep putting it off.
Do you find you have more confidence making things for yourself than other people even if it is for family?
I have recently made a couple of printed jersey tops [with no embroidery!] so as soon as I've taken the photos I'll be back to blog about them.
