Documenting my sewing adventures, and the ins and outs of learning to adjust patterns for a perfect fit.

I got a taste for MUSTARD..... YELLOW that is !!! Where Art Thou???

Why did you start sewing???

For me its because I always have ideals but can never find the item in my price range, or my size. So this bring me to my current issue.... I want some wide leg pants, in a mustard yellow fabric to go with this top I plan to make... But I'm not sure what fabric I should get for it...

I want these pants, or similar


I found this online, fabric says crepe
Also referred to as marigold

What about this from vogue Fabrics?


What type of fabric should I be searching for??? Help 





September Make a Garment Review Vogue V1417..When good intentions go.......................

Hello
I'm late in posting this review, work work it seems the last few weeks
But I wanted to post my final photos of this non-wearable garment for myself that is lol
What I learned in making this garment 
  • Use the body form, to see how the pieces will fit and where they will fall
I cut out the cape, then I took it to the body from with the pattern pieces, just to see how it would lay. 
NOW had I done that in the beginning, I would have realized that I would want to extend the cape in the front to compensate for my chest. 

I would have also made the top longer since I had extended the cape in the front. 
Once I put the cape cut out and pattern on the body form. I knew this project wasn't going to go as plan. But I did decided to finish anyway...

The zipper also gave me the blues, and I ended up still installing it upside down... Sighhhhhh
I look forward to the days where I can skip over the instructions for this part, and just employ the techniques I will learn... Because the instructions sometimes make no sense at all....
Im going to say if I attempted to make this pattern again, I will have to extend and adjust the pieces to give me the fit I wanted.... I have no photos of me in it, but lets just say.... It ended up looking like a baby with a bib on instead of flowing like a cape... 

Im going to also say, this pattern may run kinda small, I cut a 18 out, and I didn't like how it fit me, and my daughter who is a good 100 pounds smaller than me, it was just a smidget to big for her..

Well on to new projects.... I will figure out what to do with this... one
