I am sooo excited about the sew along. I have never participated in one of these and dont know exactly what the protocol is for this. That being said I have ordered two books one I got from Clevergirl’s site. The first book I ordered is Sew Fashion Design. It covers slopers, pattern drafting, and fitting. The other is Dorothy Moore’s Pattern drafting and Dressmaking. I have just checked my mail box (slipped and fell on the way to the mailbox in our ice and snow covered driveway) and its not there yet. The pattern that I decided to use for the sew along is V1040
The description says Unlined fly front, side seam pockets with topstitching detail, back darts, buttonhole welt pockets, contoured self faced waistband with hook and eye closure. Pants sit 1″ below waist.
I want to practice the side seam pockets (tried this before and the pockets bowed outward not attractive). I also want to do welt pockets incidently I found a tutorial on piped welt pockets. I would love to try this as well but I will see how everything else goes. Last but not least I like that these sit 1″ below the waist most of my pants have a crotch that is too long. I will begin cutting out my muslin now!!.
