Started decorating the wall in the new room. I hung up two old magazine pages from a 1889 fashion magazine and then I put up some pictures of the patterns that I am working on or will be working on. The glare on the plastic covers on the pictures made it hard to get a good picture for you to see.
The sun is out today. I wanted you to see what a friend painted for me. My new rock. I would say she was very lucky to find a rock the shape she needed to complete this idea. It is a great addition to my garden.
Well I got started making leggings and found out how easy they were to make. I am very happy with this pattern. The hard part was finding 4 way stretch fabric which you see after looking for a while I did find it. Now I have to decide what to wear them with.
Several bloggers sew with this Austrialian pattern company. They feel that they fit so well. I found that this pattern was easy to work with even though the directions are very different then American patterns I had no trouble following. The design was very basic. I like the way it turned out. I think I should have allowed more ease across the front so it would drape better.
I tried to show you that the back is longer then the front. Being black it doesn't show up in the picture. It comes down in the front at the bust line further then I anticipated. I thought using one of my camisoles would solve it, but I am going to have to come up with a better fix for that. I think it looks dressy, but can still be worn with jeans.
