our favorite pantTuesday, April 28, 2015
Well, that was a quick but lovely trip to Florida. We refilled our tanks with quality family time. I feel completely blessed.
Whenever my sisters and mom and I get together, we pack "party favors". It's fun and exciting. Most of the time my sisters give better gifts than me. And they did again this time, but I was feeling pretty good when I passed out my gift.
My old little Kenmore and my beloved serger.
It had been a while since I pulled out the sewing machine. And even a bit longer since I made us new lounge pants. The pattern is in Amy Butler's In Stitches Book. I couldn't love this pattern more.
I shop for 100% Cotton, Vintage sheets that cost a few dollars. Or raid the linen closet with sheets that haven't been used in a while. (Shhh.) Using a sheet is such a great thing because of the amount of fabric and the finished edges.
I use the top of the sheet for the bottom of the pant. It acts like a great cuff. Just measure the inseam you need and put the bottom of the pattern on the "cuff" of the sheet. No hemming!
myself a pair, too!)
