It's been a long time since I made a garment...had to refresh the clothing construction skills. I like making this stuff, but alot of times the patterns are terrible. I had to do alot of extra steps to make it a "finished" garment....finishing seams, extra manipulation, extra embellisment, etc. I wouldn't pay the full asking price on most of the patterns they offer nowadays. Vogue, maybe, the rest....no.
I cut out one for my mom too. I can say that out loud here because she doesn't have a computer yet. I think she will enjoy one;) I didn't realize until the recent visits just how many of my projects she has gotten over the years. She treasures them, so why not keep it up??;)
On another note.... I got tired of trying to stuff the pattern back in the envelope it came in, so I went the ziploc route...
Why didn't I think of these years ago?? I don't know if it's just me, or have the pattern company's thinned out the pattern papers??? Either way, I was afraid of ripping them to shreds. Problem solved.
It's back to the sewing table. I'm going to get the other apron finished and get something else going...not sure what.
