1  CLOTHING / Clothing: Completed Projects: Reconstructed / Cuffed Pedal-pushers on: August 01, 2007 10:06:55 AM
The first time I'd ever heard of any sort of cropped pants (several years ago), I was told they were called pedal-pushers. And when I found out that they were actually called capris, I was a bit disappointed. I liked calling them peddle-pushers. So these are my pedal-pushers.

Whenever I shopped for jeans, I always had to go to particular stores in town to get any that were long enough (that is, unless I wanted to look like I was expecting a flood). And with this thing I've been doing (only buying used clothing), I had little hope of ever finding any that fit (and I haven't, yet). But! I got an idea of a way to utilize those jeans that, had I been 3 inches shorter, would have fit perfectly!



Very easy to do, and I simply love how these came out!
I cut off the leg about 4 inches below the knee, made the cuff, and then stitched, from the inside, along the top of the cuff to keep it in place.
2  CLOTHING / Sewing Pattern Reviews / Corset Pattern, McCalls 3609 on: March 27, 2007 12:38:28 PM
I recently made the corset from the pattern McCalls 3609,

And over all, in the end, it came out really nice, I only had one problem. The pattern called for 2 and 3/4 yds. of covered boning, but I ended up need closer to 6 yards. It's probably just a typo or something. Tongue

Also, for the front closure it called for a corset busk, which is not easy to find if you don't want to buy it off the internet, so instead I used hook and eyes, and they seem to be working out really well.
