I'm so tempted to rock the swants... They look so warm and cozy, regular pants just aren't warm enough right now!
5  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Replacing jacket lining- Armhole issues ? on: December 04, 2013 10:40:11 PM
I used the old lining from the jacket as a pattern. I'm not exactly sure how the shoulder seam was sewn together, because the front shoulder seam is about an inch longer than the back shoulder seam. I left the extra allowance towards the armhole. And when I pinned the sleeve to the armhole, there ended up being 2 inches of extra fabric on the sleeve. There were no pleats or ruching in the lining and the seam allowance is consistent. I'm afraid to alter it to fit because it should work how the jacket was put together in the first place... I'm not sure what to do and not sure if the extra seam allowance could be part of it? When it didn't match up right I tore out the shoulder seam and pinned it so it matched evenly at the armhole and it didn't seem to make a difference... any suggestions?
6  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: General / 70's high waisted shorts! on: June 14, 2013 08:08:27 PM
I've never made shorts before and didn't use a pattern, I don't recommend doing that.... I sort of used a pair of existing shorts to draw out a pattern, which somehow backfired horribly and I ended up with shorts that were very saggy and large in the crotch. And I have no idea why! It was quite the headache to fix.... this is how much i had to take them in.

So after that disaster I think they turned out quite well!
Also my first time doing pockets!


Also to make them fit right, I had to put darts in the back... I hate making darts... glad they didn't end up pointy!

And action.....

I was very relieved that the fabric was stretchy enough that it didn't need a zipper. I was pretty cross eyed after it was all done!

8  CLOTHING / Clothing: Discussion and Questions / Need help drafting shorts pattern on: June 10, 2013 09:17:37 PM
I am trying to make a pattern using an existing pair of shorts I have. Drafting the front was no problem, but I can't lay the back of the shorts flat enough to trace them. The back wraps around the front a bit and I can't figure out how to accurately do the back. Any suggestions?

Thanks for the input! I'll probably end up trying one or both of those! Tongue

I bought these acid wash jeans, they were a black denim with a nearly white acid wash. The material is 79%cotton, 19%polyester, 2%elastane. I used two shades of Rit dye, 1/3 Wine and 2/3 Cherry red for a deep red kinda color, and used the washing machine method. After washing they were pink. So I dyed them again using just Cherry red and they're slightly more red but still pretty pink. Why aren't they red? Is it the material??
