Firstly, happy Monday! Hope you had an enjoyable weekend. I’m looking forward to sharing my weekend with you during this week, I had a blast two days in a row (in addition to racking up 15 painful, itchy bug bites … but let us not dwell).
But Monday it is, and Monday means work, and I’ve been having issues with my work wardrobe lately. Basically, I’m down to one pair of pants and one pair of jeans, and the boss has made it very clear — twice — that jeans are forbidden. Even black jeans. Much as I enjoy skirts and dresses, I need a break from them every once in awhile. And I’ve gotten so deep in sewing that I no longer remember where I used to buy pants, in addition to two of my favorite stores having closed in the past year. So I guess I have to make pants?
But they can’t be boring. I want fun pants. I’ve been researching here and there, and there are some interesting Lekala pants:
The fact is, I felt out of my depth trying to get a perfect fit in pants. But Diary of a Sewing Fanatic is leading a Burda webinar on how to use your TNT pattern, and I’ve watched any number of pants fitting videos, so perhaps now is the time to get B5222 right, use it as a guide for other patterns, and get my pants game going.
I guess? *doubtful face*
