Update for Endless Combinations -
I am still in the process of making the HP top in cream bamboo jersey. I altered the pattern slightly to take into account my sloping shoulders and am up to the stage of putting the sleeves in and sewing side seams and hemming. I am tossing up how to finish the flutter sleeves. Twin -needle hem, rolled hem, or perhaps raw edge? The shirring went well which was the first time I have attempted it so I was very happy with that. Hope to have a photo and full review soon.

I need to go and trace the pattern for my next item.
Thursday, November 6, 2008
I have at least decided in my head where I will start - my first item will be this Hot Patterns pencil skirt in this camel- coloured stripe fabric
And then item 3 will be these pants Vogue 1059 in View A.
These will be made in a chocolate brown linen. I recently did a pants fitting workshop where we used the Palmer Pletsch method to tissue fit the pattern. I have found it very helpful so it will be an interesting exercise to now make the pants. I did buy the PP pants fitting book so I think that will help a lot in the making.
What do you think - are the combinations working so far?
