Checkout my sewing skills with nice construction work…For those that follow me at all you may have caught me behind the sewing machine at some point. Thanks to my girlfriend MIMI G. STYLE I’m lucky to have her teach me some of the important details that go into crafting garments from rolls of fabric, and not just alterations.
So, with all that being said I have completed my very first commercial pattern (Burda Pattern #6719) which are a pair of casual sweat pants. This project wasn’t difficult at all and I had lots of fun trying to figure out each set. My girl said that I was forcing it a little and being too serious…LOL…I just simply didn’t want to mess up a step.
