…well… my blue jeans are ALMOST as good as done. I know you have probably heard that before, but the long weekend has come and family is home and there is family to visit and I am surrounded by fun! But I promise… SOON!
In the meantime, I thought I would celebrate my new blog theme and my long weekend with a GIVE AWAY! Yes, you heard me right!
I have been using Angela Wolf’s Craftsy course, Sewing Designer Jeans, and Sandra Betzina’s Craftsy course, Pant Fitting Techniques, and her Vogue pattern V2948, to practice fitting my black denim Capris and my blue jeans (not to be unveiled yet!).
I ended up with two copies of this pattern when I purchased Sandra’s two Craftsy courses (one came with each course). I’m happy to share! This pattern is “all sizes” too!
If you are interested… Please let me know by leaving a comment below answering a skill testing question – What was the first item you remember sewing for yourself?
I’ll start. The first garment I sewed for myself was a pink polyester “pant suit” – it had hipster bell bottom pants and a tunic T shirt top AND at that time, it was not a vintage pattern! The polyester was as hard as cardboard and scratchy and the pants kept slipping down at the back every time I sat down!
(My Give Away closes next Thursday, April 9th at midnight my time. I’ll post the winner next weekend.)
So until then, Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate and Have a Lovely Weekend to everyone else!
