I’ve had a terrible time sewing clothes that fit my partner. He’s not particularly odd-shaped, but the times that I’ve attempted (see here, here, here, and here) haven’t worked out very well. They don’t look terrible in photos, but he’s never actually worn them in real life.
As of last Wednesday, I am officially a doctoral candidate. I made this dress for the occasion, and wore it to my dissertation proposal defense. With this being such a special occasion, it was a risk for me to make a new-to-me pattern, but that’s exactly what I did. This is NewLook6123. After having such great success with NewLook 0180/6184, I was hoping that this dress would fit the same.
I haven’t wanted to take these pants off since I made them two weeks ago, and I’m wearing them as I type up this post. They are the True Bias Hudson Pants made up in a grey scuba fabric from Joann’s.
On July 1st, I decided that I wanted a new dress for the Fourth. Something fun and summery. Of course I didn’t go out and buy one…I made one!
These pants have a chamellion-like quality. They can be dressed up to wear to work or down to wear to bed because they are so comfortable. They also pair well with a surprising number of shirts. Does black with multi-colored splatter count as a neutral?
