Hi everyone! I have an update regarding my current mash up of our lovely Halter Jumpsuit pattern. No I didn’t forget about you guys, and sewing my jumpsuit (because I know a lot of you want to sew along with me on this particular pattern), my live/work home sewing studio has a case of the bed bugs ekk! So my sewing has been on halt for a little bit while they are being escorted out of my place. Read on to find out how I rid my sewing space of these pests, and stay tuned for when I can get back to sewing and knock this jumpsuit out of the park.

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!
