What a fun morning I had Skyping with Tina. Like Tina said, "How often do you find someone you can talk to about crotches for 2 hours?"
"How often do you find someone you can talk to about SEWING crotches in pants for 2 hours?" Yes, that reads better.
You have to be SO CAREFUL these days about how you say every little thing.
The politically correct police may come looking for me. Actually, if they do, I doubt it will be about "crotches".
Anyway, we talked about how to get the crotch length and curve just right when making pants. Tina has a very small waist compared to her hips which aren't at all large. She can't buy RTW to fit, like most of us. I encouraged her to try Sure-fit Designs. She is going to watch some of Glenda's videos. She was using the Palmer/Pletsch jeans pattern which Phylly and I have both tried to make. Even with all the "helpers" in their patterns, they just don't come out right for me. The waist on the Size 14 that Tina was using had FIVE inches of ease in it! Good heavens. She could use it for a tent in the backyard! She is going to try another pattern, and then we will get back together.
