The One with the Sailor Pants

Well hello there folks…remember me?!

Since finishing my coveralls I promised myself I wouldn’t sew anything else until my top block was finished,  but the weather has been amazing so instead of working on that I’ve been outside a lot and preoccupied with my newest love – knitting!

All that changed however when Molly of Folkwear patterns reached out and asked if I’d like to make and blog about their latest pattern – 229 Sailor Pants. Folkwear is based in Fairview, just a few miles down the road from me,  Molly is part of the Oh Sew Asheville group and the pattern is SO CUTE so how could I refuse?

So before we get into the knitty gritty, this post is sponsored by Folkwear, but all opinions are my own.

The One with the Susie Coveralls

Hey hey!

Public Service Announcement – this is a long one so get a drink and get comfy!

As soon as  Sugardale Patterns released the Kickstarter campaign to bring their patterns to a reality I KNEW I would make the Len Coveralls. The pattern was everything I wanted – modern yet vintage, tom boy yet somehow feminine too – it felt like me in a pattern honestly.

The One Where I Learned a Lot

Howdy ho Sewists!

I finally got some pictures of my first successful 2019 Make Nine projects (the story of the failures is for another day) so thought it was time I shared the journey.

This is the tale of making the New Look 6567 and I’ll give you a heads up, it is going to be a long post as it was quite a trip. However, as the title says, I learnt a lot so who knows maybe you will too? I think this will be especially helpful for those petite sewists or anyone who has had trouble with gaping necklines/narrow shoulders out there.
