These are the shorts I sewed for Jas - I have come to the conclusion that I am definitely a knitter - sewing just doesn't seem to work out for me as I hope it too. My sewing always looks hand/homemade - which does not agree with me!
Why don't my pieces come out like the ones in the book?
I am guessing it has to do with patience, perseverance and attitude!
All of which I am in short supply of - except for the attitude ;)!
When I knit, I can see the pattern coming together in my head, this I cannot do with sewing yet.
I definitely have an image of how it should look, it just never does live up to my expectations :(
I must also say that the patterns that look the worst of mine, all seem to be made form Burda patterns.
I don't know why that is?
Do any of you out there have similar experiences?
It could be that the lack of seam allowance throws me off, but it could also be because their sizes just seem abnormally huge (after measuring and re-measuring, everyone I sew for seems to be 2 sizes larger in Burda - but once the article is finished, it is two sizes larger URGH!!!)
These are a pair of pj pants that I whipped up for Kay as well. They don't look too bad, and were easy enough to create, but they are clearly palazzo pant style, even though that wasn't really how they should have looked!
I would love to do a sewing course, one that is intermediate, I know how to sew, but would like to sew well - any ideas?
I have some Craftsy courses in mind and will be pursuing them soon, but I would like to have a something simple in the interim.
Anyway, these are my FOs for the week :)
I will be sharing them over at Linda, Tami and Andrea so hop over there for some amazing work!
