I watched his 'Jean-ius' course a while ago and thought it was fanatic - my only quibble was that he doesn't talk about fitting stretch denim. Someone asked about it in the forum, and he said that everything is identical, except you need to use the same denim as your muslin in order to get it to work out properly.
All in all, I would recommend the course.
I've gotten through marking up my jeans and tracing them, but not as far as adjustments or a muslin. I know - giant slacker that is me.
Project 2: Hand-rolling the hems of my wrap dress
I tried using the rolled-hem foot on my machine, but the fabric is so slippery and thin that it kept twisting every which way and getting sucked into the bobbin feed.
I have the wrap ties all set and am getting ready to finish all the other edges (goal: New Year's Eve)
Project 3: Tinkering with the Jedi Bathrobe
After what seems like months (what has been months) I've finally put a closure in the robe and have been bopping around in it. It's a standard 26" separating zipper, so I am free to control the level of cozy supplied by the robe.
Shown here complete with bed-head, grogginess and distraction.
So with that, I wish you a happy winter holiday of your choice (retroactively if yours has already passed, as quite a few are earlier) or better yet, I congratulate you on surviving the Mayan Apocalypse. Go Team!
I love the cartoon! Yay! We survived! :)ReplyDelete
The Jedi coat is amazing! Go you! I know what you mean about little projects and distractions and attention span.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you!
I keep planning to finish, and then more things start instead. Its almost like I need to be transported to an island, with only my current work. Although, that actually doesn't sound so bad...Delete
