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.

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!

The Jessica Dress

Pattern by Mimi G
Dear friends, here I am today with a cute dress and new favorite pattern from Mimi G Style.  A few months ago she gave this pattern for free and I jumped in and got mine, It was a downloadable file, you can print it at home or at a store.  It runs by letter sizes like S, M, L etc.  I cut the size M and even thou the pattern call for only 0.3 mm I had to sew a lot more than that to fit me.  I love this pattern, I am ready to make it much more of what I thought at the beginning, it is easy, simple and elegant; you can make the skirt in many different lengths of  your preference and me personally, I feel the dress can be used all year, spring, summer and fall.  You can add a simple Torero or a long sleeve shirt under the dress and you will be warm if needed.  Here is the mine!

Summer Outfit!

Beach Time

Hello dear friends, today with my last post for summer outfits, at least in my plans.  However, sewing summer outfits is something I do during the whole year because I am always waiting for cute patterns and wonderful inspirations to sew more beach outfits.  And yes! at the end that is what it matters to me, hot weather and beach;  It might has to do a lot because I am a tropical bird. I was born in a warm city with tropical weather in Colombia.
So for this last summer project I have made the pattern M7756 from McCall pattern company; it is portrayed as a not bra outfit, so it might not be convenient for  every body's taste. however in Colombia there is a saying that in English it does not rhyme: " the fashion trends are not uncomfortable" aka " la moda no incomoda".  anyways, it is not really true, walking the streets of Colombia you can find lots of people that could use fashion etiquette for certain body types.
here it is my outfit:
