I just finished a pair of European pants from Loes Hinse--guess this is my TNT pattern tho I do make others. I KNOW they will fit, I know how to make them, the zipper is easy and neat from my perspective, and there are no surprises. That is both a good and a bad thing. No pleasant surprises of the satisfaction of a new style to sport. No wasted time from trying out a new pattern that just doesn't work for my body. So, pants are made and already being worn today with a Garbo I made several years ago and a long sleeve perfect tee from this fall. I feel put together, but the clothes are so comfy I don't feel uncomfortable in "dressy" clothes.
I have an Ottobre jacket traced for DGD and the fabric is in the dryer. I hope to get it cut out this evening and maybe even sew tomorrow. We will see how much I accomplish. The jacket is #32, The Two Way Buttoned sweater knit jacket. (*ETA from the 1/2011 issue) I'm making the first try from some sweatshirt fleece that has aged well in the stash. It's a forest green that will go with jeans or maybe a little plaid skirt I might whip up to go "with" the jacket.
I'll get some photos soon. The green Burda jacket is finished, snaps and all. I really am learning to love it!
