It's NOT I promise!
Today I finished making another pair in a lovely emerald green challis. I lined these as it was pretty see-through fabric, and I am so in love. I will wear these into the ground, I can tell already.
The slinky feel of the challis is a dream, and it was easier to sew with than I expected. I had one tiny bunch/wrinkle in one cuff that I guess I didn't press right, but it's hidden due to the elastic cuff design.
The pockets are the best part of these pants, and then the elastic waist which sits low enough that it's not annoying. So often elastic waists on adult garments make a person want to set that sh*t on fire. You know what I mean? I get chills just thinking about the fashion faux pas of elastic waist Mom jeans with those endless zippered crotches. ewweeeee
Luna can be made in any quilting cotton fabric, but I have found that I like the drape and feel of Art Gallery fabrics the best. I stick to AG when making clothing, but it's personal pref as everything is.
I super love the Schoolhouse Tunic by Sew Liberated.
The fabric is Emmy Grace by Bari J of Art Gallery Fabrics.
It's fun and rewarding to mix and match self made clothes.
I won't kid you- I've made more pieces that I "can't" wear than pieces I "will" wear. But that is part of the process, the journey of finding what suits you. I don't worry too much if something isn't quite right for me-I give it to somebody else (and then sit back and laugh and laugh).... hahahaha
Here are some makes I may have "given" you:
Anyways, the point is "have FUN". Learn with each experience and enjoy the journey.
Isn't that the point with life anyhow?
