… my blog that is, not my sewing!
I apparently am using a “retired” theme, not that WordPress doesn’t allow that, but I am still finding that some of my features are not working as I would like. So, I am going to take a tiny break, choose a new theme, and switch from THIS to THAT. It will either be exciting or a huge disaster! Hopefully, you will find me here again soon. Hopefully, you won’t see too many weird things happening in the meantime. Hopefully, I won’t lose ONE. SINGLE. THING. while changing over. Fingers crossed.
In the meantime, I ran into some Craftsy courses and some sewing patterns ON SALE and I couldn’t resist. I purchased “One Pattern, Many Looks: Pants” and “One Pattern, Many Looks: Blouses” (which I cannot even see on their site anymore).
The reason for purchasing the “Pants” course is obvious… I have been torturing myself for a while now in my efforts to make the “perfect pants”, I might as well continue!
Now for the “Blouse” course, I just figured after I beat myself up over making pants, I might as well start on my blouse making skills.
Really good news is the “Blouse” course came with a free McCalls pattern (M6649).
The “Pants” course recommended using this Vogue pattern #1003 (not included), but they were not particularly fussy – any pants pattern would do – so I bought it anyway!
Since McCalls was having a SALE ($3.99 CAN) at the time, I went wild and bought these too, McCalls M6610 and M6361.
Overkill, huh? 🙂
I do still have some sewing “under construction” too. I have almost finished my blue denim jeans. I will post some photos of them as soon as they are finished. And I am going to cut out my next couple of projects this weekend.
So what about you? Has anyone out there tried either of these Craftsy courses or any of these sewing patterns? And what do you have “under construction” now? I’d love to hear from you!
An additional note – In order to make the print darker for this theme the only way I can see to do it is to ask for a darker black colour at the time I post it. I can’t see any “default button” for choosing the darker black. I will choose a darker black print colour in future posts, but I cannot do much about past posts. Perhaps I have to buy that option?
