Two Projects – craftsy

I’m working on two projects at the moment, both craftsy classes and both ‘trouser’ projects.

The first class is Kenneth D. King – jean-ius Reverse engineer your Favourite Fit the second is Pattern design – the pants Sloper with Suzy Furrer.

This is just an overview of my two projects, I’ll  do a review of both classes at a later date.

I have a very nice soft pair of Levi jeans which are getting so thin that they probably don’t have much more wear in them. When I saw this class I thought it might be ideal for copying them. The first thing I did was to wash the jeans to make sure that they had ‘shrunk’ back to size. I decided on which side to copy, I went to the side without the knee hole :-).

You stitch around the seams and copy on to organza, from the organza you then copy to paper, and then from the paper to fabric.

here is the first version of  my jeans.


I have quite a few of the Suzy Furrer Craftsy classes, I haven’t yet finish one but I keep trying. So far I have created my first ‘pants’ sloper and made it up in an old sheet, this might be too thin to get a correct reading on the pattern but i’m relatively happy with the fit, here is the first version of the Trousers.

I don’t know about you but I feel the trouser sloper has a very 80s vibe, Simon thinks it is the high waistband.

I’ve managed to take a whole load of photos, so expect some more posts coming your way…..
