Finished my first project!!

I tried the yoked jeans for the first time, and ended up with a pair that, while not perfect, is still perfectly wearable. I need to make some tweaks to the settings before I make it again (like reducing the ease), but otherwise I'm happy with how they came out.

Are those welt pockets?

I really like the boot cut on you - very flattering - give nice balance to your body.

I've out some lines on the drawing to show the difference between the fuller leg and if she had a tapered leg.  Even if her feet were closer together the boot cut gives a fuller line, compared to what a tapered leg would.

I know style is going to a very slim cut leg, but you need to think about what leg is best for your body.

The thing I like about the boot cut is that "it's all relative". It's easy to think in terms of RTW, where a boot cut hugs the knee and then bells out markedly - but PMB gives you the "Welmoed bootcut" option, with just a hint of shaping.

Nice job on the jeans--and you are looking just GREAT! I haven't seen a picture of you in awhile, and it looks like you've lost a lot of weight!

Welmoed, I've been away from the forum for a while. Good to see you and you are looking very slim and trim! Congrats! The pants look so good on you. I, too, love the boot cut.

By the way, did you move from, what was the name of your home...Redwall?

welmoed, i'm just now seeing this, you look great!!!  and the pants look good to me, i esp. like how they fit in the back.  do you think you could take them in enough to suit you?  if so, i'd give it a try because these are good and it would be a shame to not be thoroughly happy with them.

congratulations!

Attached are pictures of the elastic cut on skirt I was planning on making, I perhaps could have used a little bit less ease and a surplice dress straight from Style Editor. I thought this may not have enough coverage but was pleasantly surprised.

You look much slimmer in the dress. The proportions look good.

I know!, I know!, according to the StyleMatch and other rules I am not supposed to wear cropped pants. I struggle with this every Summer. Where I live it would be unheard of to wear full length pants except to the office during the summer months. This is partly to do with lifestyle and the 35-40 degree C (95-104 degrees farenheit) days. I do tend to wear mostly dresses but cropped pants just find their way into my wardrobe for casual occasions. If you had seen my legs you would realise why I can't do shorts!
Well getting to the point, I have just finished a pair in stretch denim, they were made using the jeans draft (as the fabric is very stretchy) with darts and elastic. I added a cut on waistband in PE and topped stiched the inside legs. They are just so comfortable to wear so I have made a brown pair and a black pair in stretch bengaline and have a black stretch denim pair cut out ready to sew. I also have some cream stretch sateen for a final pair as all these should see me through the hot months.

Way busy the past couple of months, but...

March: finished a pair of summer-weight pants. I used the slim cut so that I could get a little shaping into a tapered leg. Sewed the waistband separately front and back, so that I can take in the sideseams easily (as anticipated, moving from work-at-home with long hours at computer to teaching/commuting on my feet all day has already made my pants a bit loose...raised my arms to the blackboard the other day and found that my pants didn't rise along with the rest of me!)

March/April: family PJs/round-home pants. Sewed fleece PJs and pull-on pants for departing son1, using a new draft...didn't drop the armhole quite enough (forgot that the knit stitch on my little Brother doesn't make a very stretch seam) and had to insert a small gusset. Son1 reckoned they were OK without the gusset (i.e. standard armhole depth was still workable) but they looked a bit restricted for PJs.

Sewed new PJ pants for self...printed out a darts/elastic pant draft down to crotch level, and added the legs of an existing print-out (saves paper and adjustments!).

Have just finished three pieces for my winter wardrobe - Stretch knit wrap front top (my PMB4 version of McCalls 5434) and stretch knit - sleeveless, armscye princess top (my PMB4 version of McCalls 5980) plus my usual pull-on, elasticised waist bengaline pants, also my PMB4 creation.

Glad to share my settings if anyone is interested.

AmbroO, Love the style of your tops and love the print. I have just lived in my elastic waist bengaline capris all summer, nice to look at with the comfort of trackies! Great outfit!

AmbrO, your knit top worked out so well and the fit of the knit is so good, that is something I am still working on, For the first time I understand your method of scaling.I am going to try it.

 Please tell me why did you add ease and then scale down? Was that to get a bit of ease at waist and hips but still scale the shoulders. Did you scale the sleeve as well.

Kirsten,

It just made sense to me to add some ease when creating my pattern. Then I just scaled as I described. I've done exactly this with previous stretch garments and was happy with the result, so I just keep doing the same thing.

Yes, I scaled the sleeve too but that's because I like my stretch sleeves to fit snug like RTW but to accommodate my bicep measurement.

What a lot of inspiring tops...love AmbroO's top and will look at the Wiki.

MerryMary, do you recall what settings you used for the collar of your longsleeved white/blue sprigged shirt? I really like that collar on you. I like the sleeveless blouse too...did you extend the shoulder a bit?

Thanks for your comments!  The settings I used for the white and blue shirt were the default that come up when you select Dress Shirt Collar:  Collar Points 2, Collar Spread 2, Collar Width 2.      I have not used Pattern Editor much and really don't understand a lot of it, so when I make any changes to the patterns, I have to do them by hand.

The inspiration for the sleeves in the sleeveless blouse came from Butterick 4985, as did the collar and neckline for the brown and white blouse (2nd row, 2nd picture).  I just fooled around with the sleeves til I got the look I wanted!  Also, on the blouses with the flounces, it was just trial and error til I got it right.  Took a while, but I'm happy with the results.

Mary - your blouses are beautiful.  May I make prints to put in the photos we have at the Puyallup show.  Last year the customers really liked seeing garments on real users.
