1  eggplant tee in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by merlette on: February 22, 2009 12:50:49 PM
I was so excited about this fabric. It's so soft but I don't think I'm as excited about it now.  It didn't make up as nicely as I had hoped.  And I will never put button holes in fabric that stretchy again!

I used this http://www.burdafashion.com/en/Magazines/Archives/125_Top/1270777-1463237-1679401-1679408-1679564.html burda world of fashion pattern as my base.

2  I made Nichola pants in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by merlette on: February 16, 2009 09:53:41 AM
It's very hard for me to write NicholA because my name is NicholE.  Always have to backspace and put the A in.

These are my Nichola pants.  I'm still perfecting pants and these are my best so far.  Although the bloody front plaids didn't match up! All of my side seams are matched up at least horizontally. 

I'm going to wear them out today and see if I want to take in the legs or not.

I made a size smaller than the pattern told me to and then sewed 5/8th on the outside seam and 3/8th on the inside seam.  I was worried about it getting over my booty. : )

3  inadvertent cowgirl shirt in Clothing: Completed Projects: General by merlette on: January 25, 2009 04:37:15 PM
I just got my hands on my first Burda World of Fashion magazine.  I am so smitten!  I love the fit, I don't think I will buy another pattern from the Big Four again!  Here is one of the shirts I made.  It is pattern 120 from the Jan. 09 issue. http://www.burdafashion.com/en/Magazines/Archives/120_Blouse_113_Skirt/1270777-1463237-1679401-1679408-1679569.html  The fabric I used turned out to be a bit more exciting than I anticipated so I threw some pearl snaps on it and now I have a new shirt to wear to honky tonk shows!  yay for dancing!

  Sleeves are long enough, I have a habit of pushing them up.

  You can see the three almost-pintuck-like pleats here.

I'm still working on learning how to finish my garments.  I just figured out how to finish a collar correctly but not until after I had already put it on the slacker way. My cuffs are done very nicely, though.  In the second picture you can see I didn't finish my button facing correctly.  What should I have done?  At least there is no extra bulk there now and the fabric lays nice and flat.
