My hiatus is over – I'm back in the sewing room! After doing some much needed housework – clearing away the figurative and literal clutter – I am ready to get back to sewing. As much as I would like to, I can't always shut out the world and sew. When I'm distracted, it's best to stay out of the sewing room. I make stupid decisions and mistakes. Several things were distracting me, not the least of which was the disorder in my house. But now that my house is clean and my mind is clear, I'm ready to get back to sewing! Once I go back to work next week, I won't have uninterrupted hours to spend in the sewing room and I'm happy to take advantage of these last few days of summer vacation.
I'm working on BWOF 01/2006 #130 pants. It's impossible to see in the photograph, but the pants have some interesting details: the shaped hip yoke pockets and side panels on the front and back. Summerset said she actually "loved" BWOF's fly front zipper instructions. Because of my bad experiences with BWOF instructions in general, I've never even read their instructions for fly front zippers. I'm skeptical, but because I admire Summerset's work and based on her recommendation, I'm willing to give BWOF's method a try. (This way, I can blame her if it doesn't work out! Tee-hee! ) I'll probably practice first on some scraps. I'm up for learning something new.
