In my impatience waiting for my copies of Sewing for Boys and Happy Homemade to arrive, I caved and bought Growing up Sew Liberated. Ever since KCWC I have been obsessed with pants with pockets for Loo. Here's my first try.
It was hard to pick a fabric to go with this yellow corduroy. I could have used about 10 different cottons but decided on this blue I thrifted years ago. I didn't do the bias trim on the pockets because I'm lazy and.... oh my goodness. Remember my sewing machine woes just over a month ago? I replaced my irreparable Brother with a Husqvarna.... Then promptly screwed up the timing on it and now it's in being fixed.
I made these pants using my Grandma's old machine.
I got it working with a little tweaking. I'm a little worried the pants will just fall apart or turn to dust after I wash them.
To change the stitch you have to put in different discs. I haven't gotten that adventurous yet.
It also has an attachment for making pleats. I can't remember what it was called but I might give it a whirl later this week.
Happy Halloween! I'm a bit of a Halloween grump but I have to admit it's getting more fun the past few years seeing it through a little one's eyes. Loo's dressing as Obi Wan and Beri's wearing Loo's old Yoda costume which will take adorable to a whole new ridiculous level.
