MOST RECENT

The #pantfitting issue I posted on Insta stories the other day is still unresolved 🤔 I've never had much success with pant sewing. Every time I make a muslin, I get reminded of how short and 'non standart' my legs are, then I get upset, hide the muslin away and decide to just sew skirts and dresses instead. Which is silly, of course, because, as we all know, one of the biggest advantages of sewing your own clothes is that you can make it fit your own unique shape, whatever that shape is.
Anyway, self-image issues aside, here is what's happening with this particular pair: the biggest issue I see is the diagonal wrinkles along the side seams. The side seam is obviously not perpendicular to the floor and it should be, as far as I know. My best guess at the moment is that this is a result of two factors: (1) pronounced front thigh and (2) "strong" calves. The first one seems to be pulling the pant leg towards the front while the second one pulls it towards the back, resulting in what we see here. I may be way off base on this though. As I said, I haven't had much success with pant fitting before. If it's something you have seen before or experienced yourself, I would be super grateful for your suggestions. If not, I'm just glad to be able to talk it out 😊
P.S. The pattern is Vogue #V1517. It's a knit pant pattern. Mine is made out of stable polyester knit and is just hand basted together at the moment. The pattern has center front and center back seams which is great for fitting. If only I knew what it is I should do 🤓

Saying hello to Constance
In her beautiful French she says : I wanted gingham pants for a while but I could not decide on the pattern ... So when the new collection from @annarosepatterns came out it was like a perfect! It was this model that I needed! This @fiberstofabric fabric was made to go with!
.

And let me tell you - that the above translation has been kindly done by #googletranslate and I just tweaked a few words .

This has been a special #collaboration because I made the pants for myself with the same print. I have a dark navy and a dark brown version in this print too
.

Secondly, this is only the second time someone has made pants with the #fabriccollaboration with me after @thebrightblooms - Atia also made pants with our #ikatfabric .

Thank you so much Constance for this wonderful and crisp collaboration
.

And everyone else : please don’t forget to take advantage of our half off fabric sale from 10 through 20 August this month as a celebration of Indian Independence Week

Progress on the #peppermintwidelegpants I have small pucker below the zip on the left in the photo. Don’t know if I should try to fix that (not sure how) or just move on. Thoughts?

The mornings are cool enough for a cardigan and this pattern by @knitbot is perfect for the job. The beauty of this pattern is that it is knit in one with no seams. Just need to pick up stitches for the band which I have finished with stocking stitch for the roll. Swipe for detail. Fingering weight yarn from @tangledyarnuk. Worn with favourite #persephonepants and the #kireicamisole by @blankslatepatterns .

#vintagesummerchallenge2018 day 8:pastel colors, this fits really well with the 50s summer ensemble I made recently, so here is another photo, where you can also see the hairstyle I made, since I am really bad at styling my hair, this was probably the proudest achievement of the day I shooted this 😂

When you watch season 9 of Project Runway all day and decide if Anya can make clothes after only four months of sewing you can bloody well give some pants a go! Fabric sourced from the magical scrap box at uni 👏🏼

I made these pants for Miss K recently. The brown cropped pants were way too big for her skinny legs, so I made the blue one in one size smaller - still buggy. I need to keep them for a few years until she grows into them. Hope she still like them then.

Nothing beats a well fitted pair of pants. #AustralianSewingGuild convention workshop in progress. Donuts and calico toiles work well together.

#calyerpants ... talk to me! Have you made them? How’s the fit? Fabric recommendations?
I’m looking to fill a gap in my autumn wardrobe, and I’ve been eyeing these for a while.
They look a little slimmer in the leg than the #emersonpants which I think at the moment are my second choice .... open to other suggestions too...? 😊

Another remake from the 90s: Burda International 1/96 mod 925 (ankle length narrow leg pants with hem slit) made from 100%linen fabric. I added a partial lining to the front, and a fly-zipper shield (both not included in the original). I also replaced the waist button with special purpose flat hook&eye. I made a test garment to attest the fit and it is terrific, just as I remembered... The only difference is: I cut two sizes larger than when I first made these pants back in the 90s, sigh... I was really skinny. The matching blazer is now on the making.

I just got done fixing one side of these pants. Now I have to do the other side. It’s like I’m just making pants since I’m just resewing half the seams. Why doesn’t goodwill just have pants that fit me? .

#vintagesummerchallenge2018 by @faces_and_style day 5: indroduction:

So I am gonna use today theme to show one of the many photos I made from the 50s summer outfit + the matching Accessoires and look.

But now to me:
My name is Marlene, in German or Marleen in English, I live in Austria very close to Vienna and I am 20 years old.
I started to sew my first clothes about 1 and a half year ago and started a proper fashion education last fall, which will be finished next summer.
I love to make things, but started with casual clothes and jewelry, since I found that more appealing back then, but I soon started to craft some costumes, first only for special occasions and then I wanted to make more. So I did.. and I am still doing it 😅
I think with making, designing and researching different costumes, especially historical ones, I have found my true passion and I hope I can work as costume designer one day or even establish my own company. .

Some sewing prep happening in the studio today. These are all cut and will become 3 pair of pants. Waiting for my sewing machine part to arrive so I can get them finished. Usually I'm not a pink person but this year at Burning Man I'm camping with @dis.ori.ent and their color is Pornj -pink/orange so I figured I'd go with the flow at least a bit. .
