Okay, this is a bit of a non post really I admit that. But I felt I should be posting successes and failures. Although technically, this is neither, and is instead a story of giving up.
I needed a nice easy project that would fit in with how manic life is at the moment. Last few days of the school term are coming up, though, so things should ease up soon. Enter a simple refashion.
These are a pair of 80's Harem trousers in a size 20. Easy job, I thought - take in an inch each side and again on the inner leg seam.
But I can't control the fabric! It's a slippy-slidey thin rayon. And it either moves under my needle, or gets pulled down to be chewed up in my machine. Not sure what I am doing wrong. I am cross, as I have just bought 2 metres of the loveliest softest drapiest rayon, and these pants were supposed to be my dress rehearsal for sewing it!
Any tips, peeps? Think the pants might end up in fabric recycle, but I don't want my new fabric going to waste.
