A quick HELLO and some pics of Phylly's AMAZING jeans.
I have made jeans several times, and I know how hard it is to get all that topstitching perfect. Phylly ripped it out in places over and over, but she never gave up. The jeans are so cute and fit so well.
VERY HARD to do because you aren't sure if the pockets are too high or too low or too close to center or too far away. So much to consider before permanently attaching the flaps.
Phylly learned that us people who have flat backsides are supposed to put pocket flaps on our jeans.
Mine may have to remain flapless.
Remember that lace top she is wearing?
I made it with my Sure-fit Designs kit. I gave it to her because after I wore it for a short time, it started scratching my neck.
I have INSANELY sensitive skin.
I was standing next to my husband's desk this morning. I lifted up my tee shirt over my bra -- then I flipped the top of my bra down -- then I pulled a piece of tape off his tape spool -- then I started rubbing the tape inside my bra.
I didn't even think about Jerry watching what I was doing. After all, I could sit on his lap as naked as a Jay Bird, and he would say, "You are blocking my view!"
I was just minding my own business taping whatever sharp object was poking my boob when Jerry said, "WHAT is your problem, Joy!?"
I cracked up laughing at the thought of what I must have looked like!
I told him something was poking my boob and I was trying to get it off my bra but it was too small to see -- NOT my boob -- the sharp object!
I can't tell you the pattern. It is a combination of Jennifer Stern, Angela Wolf and Sure-fit Designs.
Phylly is coming over this Saturday, and we are going to have a PLAY DAY!
We are both so excited. We are breaking for lunch to meet Margaret at some "new to us" restaurant. Margaret is allergic to sewing, but she does eat.
Actually, I have been trying all day to get into my sewing boxes to find a project for us to work together on. Phylly wants us to do the same thing so we can work together -- maybe a new tee shirt.
We usually talk and laugh so much, the day is gone before we get the pattern ready, never mind the garment sewn.
We don't care though. We get to sew together, and that is what makes us happy.
Here is a close-up of those fabulous pockets. See the belt loops too. I am SO IMPRESSED. Hope she wears them Saturday so I can see them in person.
