I'm pleased to report that I was very productive. Here is the rundown:
- one pair of trousers for work now fit at the waist/hips again
- one pair of stretchy fold-over waist pants are now smaller (waist again) and are no longer un-sewing at the crotch
- one hoodie sweater no longer has a hole in the underarm
- one black shirt with beading is now tapered attractively
- one orange tee shirt is also tapered at the waist
- one long sleeve v-neck no longer is too long in the vee (this required a little creative sewing - taking it up at the shoulder, while not messing with the sleeves)
I'm still having serious issues with RTW (ready to wear) pants. I tried on 20 pairs of pants last week, 3 purchased on line and 6 or 7 more on Saturday. The final outcome is that I kept exactly one of the on-line pants. Thirty pants, just to find one!
I can't help wondering if I am getting pickier the more I sew and if all sewists go thru this. Should I just buy RTW pants that don't fit perfectly with an eye to altering them? I don't know. I hate the idea of buying something that doesn't really fit well, but I need pants. What's a girl to do?
