It’s Friday night and I’ve just quit the sewing for today.
This is my work-in-progress. I’m making the longer version. It’s similar to a style I sewed myself when I was in my 20s. I loved those pants. So comfortable!
They aren’t difficult, but I did sew the side panel on the wrong side and had to cut off two seams that I had sewn and zigzagged.
This is the fabric, a lovely rayon linen blend, but it has a strong vertical design which of course is going to be non-vertical in this garment.
The waistband will be a new experience – shirring! I’m leaving that til tomorrow.
These colours are the Berroco Modern Cotton that I’m using for the DoraDoes Any Yarn Will Do Crochetalong. She has two patterns with that name, a circular yoke sweater and a raglan cardigan. I’m doing the circular yoke.
Today I started on the mustard. Currently I’m on round 20 of a 30-round yoke.
And I have a finished object too.
This water bottle holder is inspired by a more complicated one I saw on YouTube. I made it up from scratch, but learned an important lesson. I cut the squares out for my boxed bottoms ahead of time and they turned out to be too big. Instead of a square base I have a skinny rectangle.
I may make another and improve my design but for now I have other things I want to do.
I’m working the next few days but hopefully I’ll have the energy to sew my waistband tomorrow night. At least it’s a 9 to 5 shift which means I finish a little earlier than usual.
