Me Made Bermuda Pants

Today's fit pant  

Hello my dear friends, I have been working for months in a hard technique: Fitting Pants;  And although I have plenty of material and books to work on it, most of my books are in a storage unit until probably the end of January when we will be moving into our new house, however, I am not a person that like waiting to much for my projects so I took a class or two in my favorite platform Craftsy ( this is not a paid propaganda at all, I truly recommend it) and here is my result, I am very pleased with it and I will explain why!


TIPS!

  • I took the class Pant fitting Techniques with Sandra Betzina which includes the pattern V2948 
  • Easy fitting the Palmer/pletch way with Patty Palmer and Mellissa Watson, also includes the pattern M6901
  • fabric for this bermuda pants is 6oz Denim (non stretch)  from Jo Ann fabric store



My twin sister asked me why the pants are not tight? well, the result I wanted is to fix the pattern to make elegant, dressy and comfortable pants.  A woman not necessarily needs to be tight all the time and it is also a matter of taste; I like to have a variety of pants and shorts. 


This is picture above is my pants before, I enjoyed everything except those cat whiskers at the crotch area.  I am not trying to insult anyone but I will leave those mistakes for people with not knowledge about pant fittings or how every pattern doesn't fit the same way every body. Some people don't care about it but if  I am making something, that something needs to be good.  Mediocrity is not part of me. 

 Here you guys can see that I took me more than 3 muslin to make the right pants and also at least 3 months because I don't have the time to work in projects for long time during the day, I have a 4 year old boy that stays home and I can only work when he take a 1 hour nap.

Burberry - STRETCH JERSEY FLARED TROUSERS

This white designer pants that you guys see in the picture above is what drove my desire to work in a pattern to recreate the look in the future (you don't see the ugly cat whiskers) and my Bermuda pant in this post was my first result to feel it and wear it to see if it needs some other fixings.  Obviously I still can make my pants leg wider of slimmer to make more looks and outfits thanks to the front and back lines that allows me to make changes in the pattern.

I hope you guys enjoyed this  post about pant fitting, I recommend those Craftsy classes if you feel lost in the subject plus have the pattern included.  Don't forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me in the social media.
God Bless You All!


My Cowl Neck and Open Back Dress

My Vogue 1531

Hello my dear readers, this time I am bringing a review of the vogue pattern V1531 by the designer Julia Alarcon from the McCall pattern company.   Let's first start by saying that this dress is an eye catcher and I am not kidding.  I felt like the bright star of the night in every hall that I walked in my last trip with my family, if you are trying to get somebody's attention, I highly recommend this pattern.
To make this dress I didn't make any changes to the dress at all, I really love the fact that it snuggles my body and I still don't feel embarrass about it (  I have to much time needing to exercise but I don't have time, I don't have space and let me say I just miss Florida where I could do it at any time and anywhere).
I love the cowl neck, it is like a dress with an accessory included and that is a plus for me.

Fabric: navy crepe suiting
Fabric store: Jo Ann fabric Store
pattern: Vogue 1531




 I love the back opening and besides it doesn't gap; I feel the dress is elegant, lovely and sexy but it still keeps the image of a married woman with a 3 years old boy. I did have lots of fun with the dress and it didn't keep me from holding and playing with my son.




Let me know what do you think of my dress, I wish all of you a happy new Year in 2018 and don't forget to subscribe to my blog and follow me in the social media.

God Bless You!
