SWAP 2019 / Re: SWAP 2019 - Discussion
Last post by sewsy - March 02, 2019, 04:56:03 am
Lisanne! Thanks for the link to your blogpost about 3hr garment sewing. I am beginning to think about patterns to use for a menswear style shirt for youngest DD, and your wonderful post reminded me that I happen to have the McCall 6932. It's a unisex shirt, no darts. That's exactly how the shirt I'm wanting to copy is drafted! Now I can quit looking for shirt patterns!

Thanks again!

I've updated my post on speedy patterns early this year
https://sewingplums.com/2019/03/02/sew-a-garment-in-less-than-3-hours-2019-patterns/

Perhaps I'll remind you about it again in mid-April  ;D

P.S. they are much easier than what the Great British Sewing Bee challenge devisers think a sewist can make in 3 hours !!

Great jeans, Eva! They look to be well-finished and quite comfortable.

I also love the ponte pants, Demented Fairy. The navy ones look like they would be a real workhorse piece. The purple Chelsea pants are fun!

Great jeans Eva. That's a great trick to get the waistband to fit better.

I can do a straight waistband if it is narrow and hits at the right place on my back waist. Any wider waistbands have to be contoured. My 'waist' measurement varies a lot depending on where its measured so the rise is crucial. I dislike low raise pants!

Demented Fairy, great work on those purple ponte pants! :applause2: So I guess most patterns are too short in the front crotch for you? Smart to just use a pants pattern that looked good on you - now you can just make a 'crotch template' and use that for other trouser styles... Also, the pants paired with that shirt and the jacket looks great.

Indigotiger, that striped dress looks intriguing - I love the buttons!

Quote from: Sew Ruthie Sews on February 21, 2019, 11:05:31 amI do like the SA Barb pants, though wide waistband don't work too well for me I've discovered as I'm very curved at the back.

Ruthie, you can change the straight waistband to a curved waistband. I believe it's called contoured waistband, this is the type that works for any sized curvy people.

I finally got some sewing for myself done (costume and other children sewing going on) and finished a pair of jeans. I used the silhouette Pattern #3300, muslined it as per Peggys instructions in her many youtube video (actually, I did try to muslin them some time back, but wasn't satisfied. This time I worked more carfully and it worked) and got a decent fit!




As mentioned above by Ruthie, I also have a very curved back and straight waistbands gape at the back. So I took out darts in the waistband (muslin) and have a curved waistband at the back only now.



Right now I am working on another pair of jeans in dark blue. Only the waistband/belt loops to attach.

No SWAP sewing either, pressed the hem of B's costume so I can do a photo, but distracted myself by starting some mini bunting to decorate my bathroom (for some reason this suddenly appealed), the ink jacket for SWAP is stuffed in a corner with the collar not pressed, no hem and no sleeves, maybe tomorrow there will be some progress.

@Joyce P , when you click on Unread Posts, it doesn't show all unread posts, just the unread posts since your last visit. So because you visited last night and viewed the Unread Posts list, it started a new one since then for you to look at the next time you clicked.

If you want to see all of your unread posts, click on that option by clicking on All Unread Topics in the upper left hand side of the page that shows your current Unread Posts. All of those unread posts that you saw yesterday should still be there.

HTH,
Kathryn
