Question: How many iterations did it take you to get your jeans muslin to where you wanted it to be???
The jeans muslin is a big project for me, so I needed a little instant gratification sewing this weekend. I also needed another pillowcase for this odd-sized pillow I bought this summer. Standard pillowcases are too large for it. I had made one pillowcase for it earlier this year, but wanted to add to the rotation.
Of course I added piping:
This one is a sweet rose pillowcase:
with pink piping of course:
I even serged the inside edges, which is fun now that my serger is no longer scary:
Also worked on the jeans muslin a lot this weekend.
Here I am at interation #3, working on adding darts for my swayback:
I made another sample front like we did at the ASE. I made my first-ever coin pockets and wanted practice so I added two (I know in real life, there's only one coin pocket). One coin pocket is at a jaunty angle, the other is straight up and down....
This is my second ever fly front zip insertion, hurrah!
Here's iteration #4 of my jeans muslin front:
If you want to see the pix of the muslin on me, you'll have to pay for the class on PatternReview.com. Those pix, even at iteration #4, are still not going to see the light of day. The jeans are getting better--before the waistband wasn't anywhere near my body and now it is! and actually the back looks pretty decent overall. But the front and front sides are a mess...
So please let me know the answer to the question at the start of this post. :)
Sandy update: so many in NJ are still without power, including several friends and my parents. With a high of 29F tonight I am really hoping the power is restored to all very soon!
