S.O.S to anyone who’s used the Hudson Pant pattern:
Is this a proper fabric? “Viscose, Nylon, Spandex blend; 40% crosswise stretch, 65% lengthwise stretch.”
I won’t be putting ribbing at the ankles. Anybody had experience either pro or con with that? Haven’t made this pattern before and can’t touchy-feely as it’s from an online US shop (and the last on the bolt so am not linking to it.) 😉
Thoughts & Suggestions gratefully appreciated ❣️ ❣️ ❣️
Between the two, all my previous, albeit nebulous, wardrobe plans have shifted rather dramatically. Guess it’s not such a bad thing I didn’t push myself into sewing new things. 🤪
Thanks to The Fold Line for their Sunday reviews of new podcasts, vlogs, etc., because it was a Joey Sewy episode that put me onto Trinny. As Jo said, “She’s crazy as a fish,” but I love her fashion sense.
Her style and make-up tips are even for us ladies “with leisure,” no matter what body shape.
As for pattern fitting, must say Peggy Sagers of Silhouette Patterns makes a lot of sense. I’ve yet to try her ideas out, but the time is coming. Must take another look at her patterns, too…
Betwixt all this I somehow got looking at BBC’s Women’s Hour podcast list and heard a good’un: “Sacrificing for Fashion.” It starts at 24 min. and runs to 33.5 min.
After listening to it, I was delighted to see Trinny in white trainers. I’ve seen and envied Karen Ball’s wearing them in all colours, but didn’t know how to get that look for myself.
Thanks to Trinny, now I can. Anyone have recommendations for reasonably priced ones on this side the pond? Zara’s look like platforms, so I’m not eager to fork over money.
The largest is holding up the phone, but generally sits on the floor as a door stop.
The two half-size red ones live in different places, depending on needs. They have more space inside so a camera or a phone can sit comfortably. Come to think of it, there’s a cup needs a bit glued on . . . 🙄
Hope everyone is adapting to their new routine & staying well.
Many thanks for all the goodness and joy you’re sharing online!
