This is just a post to show that YES I am able to complete a garment or 2 for myself. Both patterns for the Clover trousers and the Jasmine blouse are Colette Patterns.
This was my first time sewing the Jasmine blouse. I did sew a muslin first and there were really no adjustments to speak of. As for the Clovers- I believe that this is the 4th pair I have made. These trousers are a really easy sew, and even though I made a muslin first I have altered them with each pair I sew. The colette website offers a plethora of options for wider/thinner thighs, fuller/smaller buttocks, wider/narrower rise and much more- it is really great! All the wider on me- that’s how I roll. As you can see in this picture, I could use some adjusting in the crotch area- nobody wants a floppy crotch!
Here is another shot of the blouse.
I finished off the inside with french seams. A technique that my friend Lavender from Threadsquare used. It just makes everything look so neat and tidy.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
