|One Seam Pants|
They're the One Seam pants from Louise Cutting One Seam Pants customized with her marvelous sizing instructions for Mr. Lucky.
And then I sewed up a pair of chocolate brown stretchy micro cord Style Arc Elle pants....just because I could.
You see, I was avoiding cutting out my winter coat and making that underlining decision. Yes, I needed some small successes to plunge me into the unknown....and it worked. I finished those two projects and that was enough to get me cutting and hand basting over the rest of the weekend. After all that dithering I decided on a third technique and underlined the coat pieces with silk organza. It's light but stable and crisp and I thought the cotton was just a little too soft.
I cut each pattern piece single layer to make sure I kept the herringbone tweed fabric straight and on grain.
I used embroidery needles with two strands of cotton embroidery thread to mark the pattern and silk thread to baste the silk organza in place.
Next up, sewing the coat together then making the lining decision. Focus, Jane, focus....
