I ended my last mash up sewing post with my crotch fitting weird, so that was the first thing that I focused this week before finishing up my pants (which I finally did)! Check out my final sewing post for my Everyday Trousers mash up. They ended up fitting so well, and I love the fabric combination.

I was away last week so I didn’t start sewing my trousers until the weekend (that is when I like to sew anyway). In this post I show the assembly of the pants and front hip pockets. I bought really nice medium-weight black stretch cotton and stretch silver lamé to panel together. I have one side seam complete so I was able to slip on the pant and I think I have to make a few crotch adjustments. Check out my first sewing progress report for our everyday trousers pattern, and sew along with me!

This week in my progress of sewing our wrap dress with sash I completed the sleeve and stitched together the back panels and facings! Check out my step-by-step images so you can sew along too. Note to self: sheer chiffon fabrics are not pleasant to work with… all of these steps took patience and double the pins.

I took last week off, so I put off my sewing until this week once all my traveling and holidays dinners were over with. Yesterday and today I worked on putting the pattern together, drafting changes and cutting out the pattern. As all sewers know… easier said than done (and takes a while). But the effort and time you put into prepping the pattern and the fabric, make then sewing process run smoother and then end garment fit better!
