Sometimes a pattern doesn't work for us. It's not a fault with the pattern or the designer, it just doesn't suit.I think Mimi G is kind of fabulous and I was so excited to sew these shorts up for Hugo.I thought they would suit his new style, very casual, cargo pants and tees and he was keen to give them a go.This photo shows just how long the dropped crotch is, very, very long.
I wish I was better at pattern modification as I love the jodhpur inset.
I was slightly hopeful it was just my mannequin throwing off the fit...
But I wasn't that hopeful.
Maybe it was my fabric choice (a stretch denim) the pair I saw made up were in a tweed-y wool fabric.
But they didn't suit, when quizzed (I had posted them to Hugo) he admitted he had to donate them.
However, I am not a woman that is easily gainsaid.
I promptly purchased this pattern and will be trying these next!
A pattern that always delivers is the Liesl+Co Metro tee
I had previously adjusted the pattern to be slightly fitted through the waist and hips.
I sewed it up in some heavy cotton/lycra that was left over form has Christmas Thread Theory Strathcona henley (to be blogged)
Lidia made the 'Pumba' stencil for me on my new Cri-cut machine that I got for Christmas
It's a funny little thing that Liddy hooks up to my phone and prints off all sorts on to a vinyl product that can then be ironed onto fabric.
