I have been sewing, but I have also been tossing out old clothing that the fabric is disintegrating at about an equal pace. So far, it's been a matter of jeans, T-shirts, and underpants, but yesterday my order of 5 back issues of My Image pattern magazine (out of the Netherlands) showed up in the box, and I have been paging through it and scheming since late afternoon yesterday. LOTS of inspiration contained in that one envelope mailer!
Okay, so the quickie-update is this:
- I have a better jeans pattern, and it is close to being just right on the fit.
- I have a basic T-shirt pattern that I added princess seams to the front and a center-back seam ... and on the first version I discovered I forgot to add in the seam allowances. That one is a bit snug around the belly, but I redrew the body pieces and the second shirt is almost finished.
- I've tweaked the old Kwik Sew master pantie pattern (high cut version) and have a decent sporty underpants pattern. The 1980s original was a bit too high waisted even for me.
