I had a completely solitary weekend - unless you count cats crawling all over me while I'm trying to sew. lol. I managed to make TWO pairs of pants using the Butterick 4789 pattern. Since my recent dress came out so well, I thought I'd try the pants.....SCORE! They fit really well. I'm wearing the first pair to work. For the second pair, I shortened the crotch area just a tad, for an even better fit. These were so easy to whip up, I didn't even need the instructions. I did a triple cover stitch on the first pair and a twin cover stitch on the second pair's hem.
I'll have pics of the second pair tomorrow! I have also cut out a cotton stretch skirt and will try to sew that for my sewing class. I'll be cutting fabric for a knit wrap top this evening....productivity, productivity....since I'm on a roll, I just want to go with it and get some FOs out for the changing weather.
In non-crafting news, my Sister will be visiting me in two weeks. She lives in Vermont with her family and is actually taking a kid-free vacation to visit her little (or should I say younger) Sis. We'll go to LA and pick up some more fabric so I can deck her out with some handmade duds while she's relaxing on the beach!
