its the last week before open studios weekend and I am getting crazy… first for all the things I still need to prepare and secondly for all the possible outcomes my mind can think of: maybe there will be lots of intersted people… maybe nobody will come… and so on, anyhow here are the next steps for the dungarees:
I cut them of a velvety corduroy, so I had to cut all parts in the same direction, the flap part twice in fold
before I sewed any other seams I put the invisible zipper in the left side seam, so I took the left front part and back part and put them next to each other at the side-seam
now I pinned the open zipper folded over on one part, can you see the difference between both pictures? I remembered to overedge/serge the open edges before sewing the zipper in:) Read the rest of this entry
since I finished last week with the maxi skirt with pockets I start with the dungarees now. The how to will be up every monday.
I started with well fitting pants in a similar style then I was going for
I copied the front and back parts of the pant onto paper, detailed instructions on how I did that can be found here.
I wanted the pants to be up to the waist so I added some cm to the top Read the rest of this entry
next I marked the point where I wanted the zipper to start or in this case end, I didn’t want it to end right with the hem, but a little bit above
then I pinned both zipper sides separately to each side
sewed and tested the zipper Read the rest of this entry
sorry I am one day late, I didn’t feel to good yesterday and needed some rest. But here are the next steps for the lined jacket with hood, if you didn’t see the first parts yet you can find them here: part1 and part2.
now I sewed the darts
and with the faux fur I cut them open in the middle, just to flatten them out
then I pinned front part to side part to back part and the centre back seam Read the rest of this entry
next I pinned 2 skirt parts together and the the parts with pockets to each side of those 2
the pockets are to the side, then I sewed
then I pinned 2 more parts on one side and the last 2 on the other, sewed and serged all seams Read the rest of this entry
